rowing club graz

The mission of rowing club graz (rcg) is to establish and promote rowing as a sport in Graz.

We row on the Mur on the southern edge of Graz, in the area of slack water above the Gössendorf hydro power station, along the newly landscaped ‘Auwiesen’ recreation are with a view of the Schlossberg in Graz.

The club is not restricted to students but is actively working to introduce students to the sport. In cooperation with the University Sport Institute (USI) of the University of Graz, we offer rowing courses on an ongoing basis. In future we also want to hold regattas, like other university locations in Austria.

The attraction of rowing lies in the combination of sport, water, outdoors and the chance to experience Graz from a totally new perspective.
