It’s a strange looking thing to find in the middle of the river Mur – an artificial steel island, or a floating platform. Built in 2003 to create a water based attraction in Graz, the island is a restaurant-cafe, a playground for children, and a small performance area for live musical acts all in one. It looks like a giant blue, half-open sea shell. About 90-120 people can enjoy a meal here at any one time. There’s also a cinema seating area for 70 seats. It’s a very relaxing place, especially with the murmur of the water all around you. Try coming at night, and from the bridge, take a picture of the island, when it is all prettily lit up.
