The sight of the Altstadt attracts me from the first sight! The architecture, colors and people just made this old town very special. There was a music festival when I arrived at Graz, so the square in front of Rathaus was very lively with all sorts of Austrian traditional foods and handcrafts.

It was nice to stroll into town center and just sit and look at all the buildings. This town center wasn't full of tourists and still had a 'small town' feel to it. The buildings in the area were architecturally interesting to look at because of the age of some.

The Stadtpark is lovely and if you walk around and then over to Sporgasse, you can head through a lovely pedestrian area, very charming with nice shops and places to eat or drink and look around. Do not miss!

If you are in Graz, you have to visit! The Old Town, as you may expect has a lot of old housing, nice architecture, several restaurants and shops! I think the best way to visit is walking or by bike!

Graz is a beautiful city and best explored on food or bicycle or of course by tramway. Modern architecture meets tradition, the city center is relaxed, safe and clean, the "Wuerstlstand" a MUST and so is a peak into the many, gorgeous churches.

The Altstadt of Graz is worth a trip. Narrow streets, wonderful buildings, excellent restaurants and shops. Dont miss K&Ö!!! One of the most beautiful retailstores in Austria. Have a coffee or beer in one of the "Gastgärten" and enjoi the relaxed atmosphere.

Your first stop must be the tourist office (Herrengasse)and pick up the town plan which has the attractions on it, the take you place at one of the road side cafes and browse in a relaxed atmosphere. You can book a tourist guide to show you the highlights, then return to see what you have missed. In reality you need... More

Beautiful old town with lots a charm and historic buildings. The historic buildings evoke the medieval/renaissance eras. The side streets beg to be explored. Above it all sits the Uhrturm, reached by a funicular or a heart-pumping walk. There are several historic churches, including the Dom.
