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.

Lots of people milling about, trams and bicyclists pushing through the crowds, and three separate spots where people have put many candles and fliers for the victims of the "amok driver".

As there are different tram lines going through the Main Square it seems sometime, that everybody meets here. On the square there are beutiful houses around, in the middle is a large fountain dedicated to Archduke Johann, who did a lot for the city.

The Hauptplatz is the city center or downtown Graz. An excellent area that combines modernity and ancient traditional architecture. This area has great brand stores, eateries, historical churches, chestnut sellers (!), cafes, uber restaurants, offices, shops and marts.
