Was ok to look around the centre which had a few of everything really... Market, shops fast-food but loads of trams. There were some very loud kids always hanging around the McDonald's but no problems. A typical small city center where everything is available

Beatiful old square in heart of Graz, with nice buildings and lot of coffee shops and bakeries. If you are in Graz, this place is must-see.

Located in the city centre. Great architecture all around, but tend to be crowded - especially during the Christmas holidays.

we were there on December 26th, a holiday, so beware, if there is a holiday EVERYTHING and I mean EVERYTHING is closed. We struggled to find an open cafe, the Christmas market was closed, or has it maybe already finished on the 26th? Otherwise a charming space, wonderful Austro-Hungarian buildings, relaxed atmosphere.

Was in Graz and the Hauptplatz for the annual Christmas Market. The square and town are beautiful with the old buildings as the backdrop to the festive market. The locals seem to enjoy the town and market as it was very crowded on the last Sunday of November.

Central square in Graz with nice monument in the middle. Surrounded by many stands selling natural juices and sausages. Tram station and lots of shops,bakeries and coffee bars and restaurants. There is a town hall there where you can see people getting married. Always alive and especially nice during Christmas.

The main square offers little shops (Xmarket shops during December), the City hall, some Fashion shops and it's a good starting point for your sightseeing trip, either by foot or by tramway. E.g. you can reach the Uhrturm by foot in about 15minutes from there.

We came one evening in July. The old town was very charming and the town hall was beautiful. Unfortunate I was very disappointed of the square. It was filled up with ugly stalls. I think it spoiled the charm of this square.
