Lueg-Hämmerle

Luegghäuser

The Luegghäuser town houses were built in the early 16th century and rebuilt in the Baroque style at the end of the 17th century. The two adjoining houses are located at the corner of the Hauptplatz and Sporgasse, and are easily recognizable because of the medieval portico on the ground floor and the splendid stucco façade by Domenico Boscho and dating from 1680.

Close examination reveals a particularity of these facades: the mouths and noses hidden among fruit garlands and vases. Originally, the corner house was called “Moßeregg,” later the unusual name “Luegg” – derived from the colloquial word for looking – fell into use. From the Schloßberg you can make out the roof of these bilding, they are a special feature of the Graz roofscape.
