This "Hauptplatz" is one of the nicest in Europe, great shops, street food, you can also ride the "tramwaj" to other places in Graz from there, overall experience - great ;)

This is the main Place in Graz from which you can go by all trams. There are several shops around, one department store. Close to the old city of Graz.

I like very much the city of Graz, and I've visited it several times. During my last visit I've decided to 'explore' the Hauptplatz at early morning and I've discovered an outstanding square, one of the most impressive all over Europe.

Graz is a great city. I didn't have enough time there but we walked through this platz. Thre are souvenir stands, food stands and it is a central and very pretty hub for the city. I would say that Graz is under-rated even though I was there a short time. Can't weait to go back for a few days there.

The Hauptplatz was nicely arranged as a Christmas market, there was enough space between the stahls and there was nice merchandice displaced. They also had intersting music groups in the evening.

Everytime I come here, I feel Graz. . . the beautiful facades, the pulse of the city. . . and there's often something happening here or nearby. Grab a coffee, poke into a shop, or explore one of the extending alleys and side streets.
