The main square in Graz is lovely with amazing architecture and impressive buildings all around. The square is at the end of the main shopping street, well worth d walk through!

I saw this and thought it would be really scenic ang full of authentic, traditional market stalls. The buildings all around are lovely but the stalls are not market stalls but food joints. Basically takeaway huts. I still enjoyed walking through, but changing the huts to traditional market stalls world be much better.

Sadly we arrived on a sunday to have two nights to break up train trip between Ljubljana and Budapest. Everything closed. No one around. Was actually quite sad!! Thank goodness one shop was open to get some lunch. Almost got hit with Tumble weed as it rolled through the main square. I am sure it is a thriving and exciting... More

Just returned from Graz. The Hauptplatz was a great place to eat (Sausage Stand 3 is the best), people watch, explore the side streets with shops, restaurants, and overall a great place to relax and people watch.

The small nice square surrounded by beautiful buildings is completely ruined by terribly ugly permanent stands selling sausages. In the evening is obviously always empty since the stands are closed (turning into white plastic cubes) and there is nothing to do.

If you are out and about in Graz you will eventually find your way here. Extremely interesting buildings all around, lots of fast food and trams coming and going. Nothing unique about it but if you are in the city you must see experience it.

We visited Graz in April. This is a beautiful centrally located square with many beautifully restored historical building, restaurants and shops. Clean and very picturesque, with local food stalls. Highly recommend.
