Judenburg Things to Do

  • City tower and Planetarium

    It is Judenburg`s landmark, built in venetian style. As the church St. Nikolaus has no own spire (or better, it has a small one, but without bells), it is it`s bell tower. In November 2006 they opened a Planetarium on the top of the tower. They show short three-dimensional films, like "Ursprung des Lebens" (origins of life), "Entdeckung des...

  • Former Jesuitenkloster/Jesuit`s...

    The building used to be an Augustinian hermits cloister, but was then donated to Jesuits who opened a school there to teach mainly Latin. From the 18th century on it was used as military barracks. Now you can find the youth hostel and the hotel "Zum Sternengucker" there. The interesting thing to see in the building is especially the baroque...

  • Head up the Stadtturm

    The Stadtturm contains an exhibition about Judenburg's past - having been built in the 15th century. There are glorious views across Aichfeld and into the Murtal, and the views on a clear day allow you to see mountains and forests. It is only a stone's through from the Hauptplatz (the town's main square). Admission is cheap and the view worth the...

Judenburg Restaurants

  • Pizza and Pasta

    It is difficult to find a nice restaurant with a bit of an atmosphere in the very centre of Judenburg- and in my opinion this is the only one. It is located a bit hidden in a narrow street at the old city wall, in a small old two-storied building. It is nicely decorated, with a lot of wood and old wine casks. They serve the usual italian dishes,...

  • More fine Styrian fayre

    More hearty portions and local fayre available here. As with Gruber, the food is reasonably priced and the portions plentiful - with a wide range of Styrian dishes. They have a range of local wines and beer on tap to accompany the food. The salads and the desserts are from memory not to be overlooked!

  • Fine fayre, healthy portions and great...

    I used to go to Café Gruber on a weekly basis (at least - sometimes I was in there nearly every day!) when I lived in Judenburg in 1997/98 and used to enjoy their Styrian cookery - all freshly prepared. Last year I returned - it was hardly as though I had been away - the owner still recognised me - and was as welcoming as ever. As a social hub for...

Judenburg Nightlife

  • Judenburg by night

    Nightlife in Judenburg is exciting if you are under 18. After finishing school many people move to Graz or Vienna to study or to work. However, New Weiler`s opened about 2 years ago and replaced the traditional Peter Weiler`s bar. It is in the centre of Judenburg. Usually it is crowded the nights before holidays, like the 23rd of December or Good...

  • A fine little drinking hole

    I used to pop in here for a coffee or two during the day, and by night it was my favourite haunt in Judenburg - the drinks were good, prices very reasonable and it was not as crowded with my students as other places, so made a welcome retreat. Nights in Weiler were always happy ones - I used to regularly stagger home in the small hours after having...

  • One of those surreal moments

    Paul's café was a favourite spot with teenagers (in particular the one's I used to teach!) that rather surreally had an entrance to a night club through the men's wash room - after about the tenth visit I did discover that the nightclub in the back could also be reached from the street - thus shattering the illusion. The music was pretty...

Judenburg Shopping

  • coccinella169's Profile Photo

    by coccinella169 Written Feb 1, 2007

    Gössl is a company based in Salzburg, which has stores in other parts of Austria too- one of them in Judenburg. They produce traditional Austrian clothes, like the famous dirndl dresses. Their clothes are hand made, of a very good quality and using the best materials. Due to this, the clothes are not cheap. For a traditional dirndl-dress, including the blouse and the apron, you should calculate around 1000 EUR. Collections are available for women, men and children.
