The city of Graz has a lot of lovely buildings with intricate paintings and a lot of interesting shops. No wonder Graz is UNESCO's City of Design.
We have lived in Graz now for 5 years and a trip to the old town is always a pleasure. The buildings on herrengasse in front of the hauptplatz have ornate plaster work and beautiful decorative paintings. On herrengasse itself is many food stalks where you can buy the Austrian takeaway good of bratwurst. There are many restaurants and clothes... More
The second biggest city of Austria and the capital of Steiermark offer so much that one must visit if in Central Europe. Museums beautiful city buildings and real culinary treats top up the remarkable setting.
Nice place for shopping. A lot small shops and everywhere I've been very friendly and helpful people. Unfortunately there are a lot gypsies asking for money. Ignore them and you will have a nice visit.

It is a hidden gem. It is a city where young meets old, it is architectural amazing. The Mur has it,s bike paths leading to the outskirts of the city, surrounded by lush green hills. In the center is the Schlossberg, with stunning views .

We did 2 of the 3 walking tours as described in the Graz city map (freely available at most hotels and the tourist info), and were pleasantly surprised by the mix of laid-back city pockets, architectural curiosities and busy main streets. Relax and have a coffee or apero around the Franziskanerplatz, and/or enjoy the view from the top floor of... More
Just stroll around the historic city centre of Graz, starting from the market place and continuing onto the Herrengass, the main shopping street, without forgetting the area where all the antiques shops are. Graz equals Salzburg, or is maybe even nicer.
