Even if Archduke Johann, by his own admission, was not a fan of noble elegance, he did construct a beautiful "palais" rather than just a city residence. In 1828, the Styrian prince acquired the grounds for the erection of the Palais Meran between 1841 and 1843. The new landlord was content: 'very habitable, spacious - all I can ask for' he is reputed to have said about the new construction with its wonderful park, designed by architect Georg Hauberrisser. Today, the building houses the Graz University of Music.
