Uhrturm is attraction of Graz that you must visit. I recomend that you climb on top with funicular because the stairs to the top are numerous and steep. This offers panoramic view of the entire city and it's beautiful. You can go down on foot.

There is an amazing view from this site, and the story about the "switched" clock hands made us stop and think about life, for a moment...

I think the Uhrturm (watch tower) is not very impressive itself. However, together with the Schlossberg park and the city views from there, it becomes one unmissable tourist point of the city.

Whenever I am in Graz, I make it a point to come up here. You take an elevator from Schlossberg by paying 2 Euros. Once you are up here, you are greeted by a coffee shop and a panoramic view of the city below. The Uhrturm has a small fort built on top which has a history during the time... More

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.
