Graz is VERY touristy (Sunday is pretty quiet however and less crowded) but the architecture of the old town (a UNESCO listed world heritage site) is stunning. Its mediaeval lanes, baroque façades, renaissance courtyards, and an expanse of domes and russet roofs are astonishing. But modern architecture prevails too - the Murinsel (a cafe/restaurant in the middle of the fast... More

The beautiful façades, the courtyards, and the narrow streets make for a great walk through the city. Absolutely wonderful. It's like almost every building or corner is waiting to be photographed.

The historic centre is always worth a visit. It feel quite mediterran in summertime and is very romantic in wintertime. Gotta see it! Climb Schloßberg and have a great view all over the Unesco world heritage.

The Altstadt in Graz is a wonderful warren of Renaissance (and possibly older) buildings and churches interwoven with the daily life of a thriving city. There are a myriad of restaurants and outdoor seating in summer. Numerous narrow streets beckon a long walking exploration in the mostly car-free center (the locals ride lots and lots of bikes around town). While... More

Graz is a nice place to wander around seems quite lively with plenty of bars and restaurants. The view from the castle over the town is great and there is a lift if you don't fancy walking

This is Graz's crowning glory and incredibly the city authorities have decided not to charge entry for what remains of the old castle or its grounds. There is a short, steep walk up from the old town below (clearly signposted) but it is worth it for the breathtaking views across the city. You'll quickly spot the blue slug of the... More

The old city of Graz is included on UNESCO's world heritage list, and not in vain. The narrow alleys, the pedestrian streets, the picturesque buildings - worth an intensive stroll around the city center. Burg (castle), Dome, Glockenspiel , Landhaus, Clock tower – are some of the main attractions of this beautiful old city.
