At Altstadt von Graz, see how different cultures from the neighboring regions shaped its townscape. A World Heritage Site and living museum, the Old Town mixes many architectural styles, from gothic to contemporary. Walk the narrow alleyways alongside the Italian-style palaces, medieval facades, and modern buildings. Take a cable car to reach the Schlossberg, which is the site of the 11th-century fortress. Stop at the clock tower, the symbol of Graz. Other important sights are the town hall, the mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II, the Kunsthaus, and the Dom--a Gothic cathedral. Along the route, you'll find many street cafes with quasi-Mediterranean flair.

  • The old town of Graz embodies all the tradition Austrian quality and elegance typical of the world. Especially during the Christmas markets of all kinds and in different areas of the city lights and decorations make it even more appealing. The shops and the bakery then are cured and contain all Styrian traditions. Surely it is by making us two steps without a shadow of a doubt.

  • You can describe and large so Graz, beautiful historic old town. From mass tourism yet beautiful mountain (Schloßberg) spared, super great restaurants of and upscale cuisine. Fun and friendly people, University City, hence lots of youth and young at heart. Many beer gardens in romantic courtyards.
