The Grazer Schlossberg is a must see if you visit the city of Graz. You may use the Schlossbergbahn or the elevator or climb the stairs to reach the sightseeings on the Schlossberg.

Fascinating visit to Renaissance , Gothic and Baroque architecture for enthusiasts of history. Other modern time building projects have sprung up in this capital of cultural institutions located in Graz which is easy to commute to in Central Europe.

Seriously one of the better city parks. Endless trails. Lots of great views over Graz. Once you are away from the touristy part, there is literally no one. The clock tower is nice. Plenty to do. Can easily spend the better part of a day...More

Great for a visit any time. Good views, nice to walk up - there are more options, some going via big park. Funicular is interesting too, and the path going through a tunnel..
