It seemed like every bus and tram in Graz stops here! The square itself is perfect as it has a McDonalds, Subway and other fast food places, a grocery store, a Dollar Store and other stores for folks on the move.

Like old town at any city that I read from the books the town hall almost square, and at the middle have a landmark, like statue or else, good vintage point at Graz!

Lots of activity in this plaza - and very good food stalls. We. Spent about an hour just wandering around having ice cream and people watching. There was a special place where you could take a book or magazine and sit in aha,mock or a bean bag chair or cushion chair and just relax.

It's our family tradition, when in Graz first stop must be "a Wuerstl stand am grazer hauptplatz". Must have is a frankfurter wuerstle served with mustard and freshly grated horseradish with a kaiser roll and a bottle of goesser bier, rain or shine, summer and winter as far as I can remember back it always was my family's first stop....

It's one of the most busy places in Graz, filled both with locals and tourists. A great place for walking, a great place to get to any place in Graz due to multiple tram options. Lots of cafes and restaurants, some intereseting museums are just minutes from it.

I felt this is the core of the city centre together with Jakominiplatz. Keep an eye out for pick pockets.
