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.

We've been to Vienna and Saltzburg before and now ere, in Graz. Honestly, I didn't know what to expect. Maybe this helped me, but Graz become one of my favorites cities in Europe.

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.
