Lovely old city, streets going up to the mountain, right in the center of the city. Lots of restaurants, pubs and excellent views. I was there on 25-th of december, so it was cold and everything was closed, but still I could it a good pizza and take lots of photos.

comparing the international reputation of Vienna and Salzburg with Graz, the latter is sadly underrated. The old town is a fantastic mix of Renaissance, Baroque and 19th century architecture, plus some avantgarde items. Graz breathes the strong regional identity of Styria province. Several top restaurants, a great opera house and a big theatre. Definitely worth a visit of at least... More

Austria's second largest city hasn't always been on the tourist route but it's hard to understand why it wasn't. The city brims with architectural charm, pride of place, a cool combination where radically modern style among young people mixes comfortably with people in their everyday Dirndls and Janker--it's not hockey, it's normal here. Graz is home to a number of... More

The Graz old town is beautiful. It is no wonder that it is on UNESCO World Heritage List! Everything is perfectly preserved. The best thing is that Graz is not that big, so you can really see everything in one day. The prices are off course a little higher on the main shopping streets but if you go a little... More

The city centre was impressive during advent evenings. There are old painted buildings, narrow medieval streets, many good restaurants, hundreds of stands with punch and Christmas specials.

The city of Graz is a very beautiful place. You can reach every place by foot and there is something for everyone. Though there are many students, there´s also a broad offer on bars and pubs, but also sights like Schlossberg, Uhrturm and so on are worth a visit.

I have lived here for over 30 years and still enjoy wandering through the old city of Graz with its historical main square, winding alleys and passageways. The vibrant main square is very much the center of the city and hosts a variety of events such as the advent market, sports events, concerts and even an outdoor library. The tourism... More

Went there for a day with my roommate. It was really cold but all the colors and smells helped us with ignoring it. There are a lot of stands on the main square in front of the city hall. There is a waffle stand with the most delicious waffles ever, and a punch stand and a cooked vine stand and... More

I am a little prejudiced maybe .... born in Graz.. most of my life living in Graz... Graz has made big steps ahead in the way of becoming a hot spot for tourists, but also for the people living there. You still can have relaxing walks thru the old town quarters without tourist crowds.... Hotel and restaurants, you can find... More

I love to take the vehicular to the top of the Schlossberg and look out over the town. Almost all of the structures have signs in english.
