University of Graz

The University of Graz, founded in 1585, is Austria's second oldest university and one of the largest in the country. Numerous outstanding scientists, including six Nobel Prize winners, have taught and researched here. With 31,000 students and 4,300 employees, it makes a decisive contribution to the vibrant life of the Styrian capital.

Austrians are very friendly and jovial! They love to go out to get drinks or a cup of coffee, so they are more often found in restaurants or cafes compared to the Dutch.
