The 'Stadtkern' of Graz, Austria

In German, we use the same word for the stone of a fruit and the centre of a city: Kern. So we say Stadtkern to talk about downtown. That’s why this public artwork in the Styrian capital made me smile.

An artist couple – Anne & Peter Knoll – marked the geographical midpoint of Graz with the sculpture of a peach stone. If you are there, don’t forget to visit the nearby Gothic double spiral staircase.
