Lovely view of the city and surrounds. Quaint old clock tower with one of the first clock works ever installed. Hands are the wrong way around because of counter weight mechanism I am told.

The view to Graz roofs up there is breathtaking. Peaceful walk or fitness stairs :)) up there you can find cafe-bar Aiola. And there is something different with the dial of clock- try to find it out;)

The walk is great to the top of the fort where the clock tower is located. I visited a week prior to the Austrian F1 Grandprix, and it was cool to see the checkered flag. Nice place to visit in the summer!

This clocktower is what makes Graz unique. Walk the stairs to the top (or pay for the funicular) for great views of the city.

You can climb the steps (lots of them:) or take a elevator. You will be rewarded by a great view of the city.

Lift takes you to the same level as clock and comes out of mountain at lovely restaurant with all round views. The cable car is the only way right to the top and again comes out at lovely restaurant.

Very nice view of the historical city of Graz. Elevator (costs 1,5euro)is available in order to avoid the about 500 stair steps.

great place to get some sun in the middle of Graz, to get stunning views over the city and to have a nice drink... Don't get scared by the stairs, there's a lift AND a furnicular, if you're lazy like we were. :)
