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.

It is maybe the only staircase which is so built. Two staircases are together in a very interesting way. It is from the middle age.

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.

We entered the grounds of the Castle, built during the 15th century, it was refurbished several times during the following centuries. Particularly interesting is the double spiral staircase built at the end of the 15th century which granted a nice view of the cathedral.

This was the first stop on our walking tour of the city. It was such an interesting highlight of the tour, I’ve never seen anything like it. It doesn’t take long to climb to the top and look down. Such a fun experience!

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...More
