Many people outside Graz are jealous of its citizens for their wonderful Stadtpark (city park). Generous amounts of greenery dominate the picture and have done so for more than 100 years. Knight Moritz Ritter von Franck had the idea of constructing an oasis of calm on the former forecourt of the fort. Numerous statues, such as the Rosegger-Monument, decorate the many paths and lawns. The architectural and artistic highlight is the Stadtpark fountain, acquired at the 1873 Vienna World Exhibition. It links Graz and Paris because its side parts can be found on the Place de la Concorde in Paris.
