The castle in Graz is the headquarters of the state government and a real jewel. It has been structurally changed for centuries, offering interesting elements of Gothic, Renaissance and Bidermeier. Especially the twin spiral staircase, which initially looks like an optical illusion, is particularly exciting. It symbolizes separation and reconciliation. "The staircase reconciliation" consists of two opposite staircases that connect to each floor, separated and reunited again.
The castle was built in 1438 as a residence of the Habsburgs and was originally included in the medieval city fort. A monumental building, be sure to visit.

Was great to see and got some interesting photos. Amazing staircase design. It’s free to enter and suggest doing a selfie on the second set of stairs up by placing your phone on the balustrade post.

Standing within a public building in the old town of Graz and with free access, on the left side of the road from the Cathedral. The stairs split and rejoin several times as they circle upward to the top. Me and my son went separate ways and ultimately reunited. Very interesting and funny.

Worth a quick look/climb. Old staircase. Visited in the evening and couldn´t get through the closed door at the top of the stairs.

Take the time to see this amazing structure that was built in the middle 1600. Hope you can avoid the large crowds. See this marvel when they are gone.

This was a real fun find and so unusual too. The spirals wind up in both directions and meet in three places taking you to the top of the building. This staircase was originally part of Graz castle which was demolished, but some bits still survive. A little hard to find, but do try, its worth it.

According to our walking tour guide, this is sometimes referred to as the lover's staircase because two people climbing from separate steps will keep meeting over and over. Come visit with another person to make it easier to figure out what's going on.

Approximately less than 100 steps to the top with the two sides. They are merged in three places. I recommend a visit with couples.

These stairs are straight out of a fairy tale movie. They are tucked away in the courtyard of the Grazer Burg. Built for Emperor Maximilian I around 1500, they are a blast to walk up, but alas they don't go anywhere at the top so you just come back down. We learned another day on a guided tour of the city that Friedrich the III, Maximilian's father, was not a fan of frivolity or whimsy. So Max probably got his taste in interesting architecture from his mom.
