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.

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.

Trams, but no cars. Shops, but not too big crowd. Just right. Day and night. Clean, beautiful! Love it!

A very beautiful city center. Preserved buildings under UNESCO protection, colorful and beautiful - just like the Disney Land :-)

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.
