The clock tower provides an unlimited view of the city. Take the elevator up to the top of the mountain for a panorama view of Graz. Be sure take the stairs down; it is a very nice walk down each level gives a different view of the city. However we did miss the mine car inside the mountain.

The hill, the remaining defensive walls of the former castle and the tower are together one of the main attractions of Graz. The clock tower is even something like a symbol of the city. You can take the stairs or the lift / elevator up to the hill. It worth it. Great panoramic views of Graz and many photo opportunities.... More

Great vantage point for the city. Opt for the lift going up and take the stairs down the mountain. It was the perfect place for a bird's eye view of the city.

This landmark offers history and a great view of the city, there are three options to reaching the top, walking a steep flight of stairs, strolling through a long ramp on the other side or simply paying to take the elevator. Whichever you choose remember to take the camera for great pics.

Do not miss to visit this place. Its on the top of the hill with a historical meaning for Graz. Very nice view from above on the city, many possibilities to relax, walk, have a drink or eat.

You can't visit Graz without seeing "Uhrturm". That is the symbol of Graz and the view from there is astonishing :) You have to take picture there!

The historic clock tower, the landmark of Graz, is a real must for your visit to Graz. Take the steps or the lift (situated in the tunnel) or the Schlossbergbahn train and then walk through the beautiful gardens to the clock tower and enjoy the view of the Old Town beneath you.
