The old town is a maze of small streets and alleyways; which need exploring on foot. There are hundreds of hidden courtyards, which could easily be overlooked. Get an information guide from your hotel or the tourist office to be sure you do not miss any of these hidden treasures. The Altstadt is relatively small and compact, so you will not have to walk miles but give yourself plenty of time to explore and be nosey - we found a number of alleys, which look like they lead to private places actually lead to beautiful courtyards with cafes and restaurants.

It is very pleasant to stroll in the streets of Graz. For me it is like an open air museum. I have to admit that it has a provincial flair and you feel that everything goes in slow pace. The city is very well organized and communicated. I recommend to visit as much churches as you can. Food is quite cheep compared to Vienna.

Old town is not very small, full of Gothic and Renaissance buildings with some modern architecture. Food and shops are nice, antique items and local artsy stuff you can find - really great.

Despite old buildings fully renovated, the christmas period is an ideal time for a night city visit, with all illuminations, christmas markets, gluwine shops. Shopping possibilities are various and prices are not exagerated. The Altstadt visit should end with the castle from which you will discover a view on the whole city of Graz.

Graz was a pleasant surprise. The city had much more to do than I expected, and the Altstadt is very clean and organized. Most of the attractions are within walking distance.
