What is most striking about Graz is the beautiful architecture of its medieval and Italian Renaissance buildings. Explore the Old Town, a UNESECO World Cultural Heritage Site, with its stuccoed facades, secret courtyards, and narrow alleys. Duck into galleries, museums, cafes, restaurants, and shops in the lively heart of the city.
The Schlossberg ("Castle Mountain") is one of Graz’s most popular attractions, offering views over the medieval roofscape of the Old Town. Though the massive fortifications have mostly been leveled, the old Clock Tower, which dates back to the 13th century, remains a landmark of the city. Enjoy the sunset from the terrace of one of the restaurants, sipping a glass of local Sauvignon Blanc.
