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.

We went during winter and everything was covered with snow. Just perfect. Every building is interesting for itself. Great murals and tidy squares. Graz is not huge city so don't bother with public transport. Try to walk everywhere you go.. you will see a lot of interesting stuff on your way.

Graz has certainly cleaned up since I was there 15 years ago. A great face lift and the place looks amazing! The historic area is beautiful with wonderful shopping. The K&O department store has a roof top café that you have a wonderful view of the entire city and the terra-cotta roof tiles. The Murinsel is an odd thing in... More

The Rathaus dominates the main square which is the tram transport hub & eating stalls. A beautiful building with its clock, dome & corner towers. By the entrance are the plaques telling in 1999 it became a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site for Graz. It is the best preserved city centre in Central Europe. In 2003 Graz was awarded Europe's...

Graz is the second largest city of Austria. But this is not the most important fact you have to know for this really nice town in the southern parts of Austria (not Australia! as even UN-GeneralSecretary Ban Ki Moon had said). It is influenced by Hungary, Slovenia and, most of all, by Italy! Climate, people, buildings and restaurants are mediterranean.... More
