This square is big enough to wonder and explore it and small enough so it doesn't scare you away. It is a nice square with shops, cafes, restaurants. The Rathaus dominates it. In December there is a big Christmas market there. It is right in the centre of the old town.

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.
