Landhaus is one of the most beautiful buildings within the Old Town of Graz, Austria. It is located within the UNESCO World Heritage Site core zone. This building once housed the Styrian diet during the time of Habsburg rule, which also covered parts of Slovenia and Italy
Today the Landhaus building is used as the provincial parliament building. The 16th century Italian military architect Domenico dell'Allio did some renovation work on the Landhaus. Italian Bartolomeo di Bosio designed the stairs in the northwest courtyard.

One of the most beautiful parts of the Landhaus building is its central courtyard, surrounded by three-storey balustraded galleries that are connected by a raised walkway. There is also a fountain here with a forged bronze cupola. The courtyard is used in the summer months for festivals.
