Hadn't expected this to be quite such a big mausoleum. Loved the space, the light, the marble, the domes. Also loved the painted marble....not sure what the name for this art style is, but very effective.

For two adults and two children we paid 16 euro. Once inside there was very little to see compared to the cathedral next door, which was free! The marble alters were made of painted wood and not real marble, the crypt is only viewed from a distance, and the walk to the roof is littered with bird droppings and dead... More

If you go to Graz that's one place to visit!! The Mausoleum is very beautiful, the ceiling is all painted. There's also a tower that you can go to the top and have a view from the city. It's a shame all the information is only in German, and they sell some small brochures in english. I bet that each... More

When we walked in the young woman who was selling the tickets looked annoyed that I asked questions. She charged us full price (my mom is a senior citizen). There's no information in English. When I asked about the information the ticket woman rolled her eyes and told me to buy a brochure. When I asked her why (I just... More

We walked to the Masoleum and beautiful church attached. The cript is worth the stairs down, the view is worth the trip to the top. Very ornate and beautiful inside- don't miss the church.

Don't let the entrance fee keep you away to visit this jewel of Graz. You won't regret the fantastic paintings in the church, the Mausoleum itself or the view from the clocktower. This is one of my personal highlights in Graz!

Very impressive! Such beautiful architecture, statues, paintings. You also must climb the bell tower to see amazing city views. See and hear the bells ring. Little deafening but worth the experience.

Part of every standard tour of the historical old town, nice Baroque mausoleum. Try it on a gray and freezing cold winter day, then go somewhere warm and bright and have a hot drink to raise your spirits.
