Mur Island


The Murinsel (Mur Island) is a construction of steel in the Mur river, located in the centre of Graz.



It was built for the event of Graz being the cultural capital in the year 2003, and developed itself as attraction and a popular sight of Graz. The Mur Island was created by the New York artist Vito Acconci.
The open part of the construction can also used for being a resting place to lay in the sun. The closed part of the island is a trendy bar and coffee house.



Itís also possible to cross the Mur river from one shore to another. So the construction can also be seen as a bridge.
