Graz is a charming city with well preserved Old Town, allowing for the visitor to engage in exploring it's hidden areas with lots of admiring and solemnity. There is a nice church nearby, the museum where the royal family was burried right behind, and a beautiful Gothic staircase one cannot afford to miss.

Graz is one of the few cities with a castle right in the center of town. Walk up a winding path, take the funicular railway or a glass elevator inside the mountain! Anyway you go, the view of Graz and the countryside from the top is well worth it. On your way back down get a großen Braunen (large cup... More

Graz is my favorite city in Austria. It has all the charm, scenery, and architecture of Salzburg without the gouging prices. And instead of tourists everywhere, you find real Austrians going about their business. As a result Graz has the soul that Salzburg lacks. I wish we had spent more time here.

Absolutely beautiful! From the bridges on the river Mur to the old walls, the old town is perfectly preserved (or restored) and mostly pedestrianised. It's a pleasure to walk around it and take photographs.

We spent several hours walking around this are which is highly recommended by us. Everything is rather close and there is lots to see and do. A lovely old town area.

Graz is a smallish, but stunning city. You can walk to most of the attractions, the city is very beautiful, clean and feels very safe. Thanks to the river flowing through the city centre, it is very easy to navigate oneself. In the Altstadt you will be amazed by the architecture or the views from the castle up on the... More

We visited friends in Graz and found it to be a nice European city. The older buildings have been well preserved and are still used for quaint shops and restaurants. Don't leave without trying pumpkin seed oil on a salad or even in an ice cream cone!

I liked the Altstadt in Graz in terms of its architecture but frankly speaking it lacks the activities which can be watched there. More fun can be done there if they take care of this point. I stayed 4 days in Graz and did not see nice activities in Altstadt.

The old town of Graz is beautiful. Lots of nice shops or lunch rooms. You can walk all the way up to the bell tower.
