Create an itinerary including Altstadt von Graz
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. Put Altstadt von Graz on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Graz online road trip planner.

  • Plenty of shops, cafes, restos...typical fare for Old Towns in this part of Europe. Graz seemed quite quirky/artsy/hippie/youthful--again, for this part of Europe. A nice surprise. Yes, very...

  • It can't be improved in any way. It's ugly, deprived and dirty. There is NOTHING worth visiting in Graz. It's full of homeless men in shop doorways, alcoholics on benches and nasty closed down shops.....  more

  • Altstadt von Graz is a must to see. This downtown is so relaxed and nice. There are plenty of stores and restaurants. The buildings are so beautiful.

  • The old town center is full of culture and life (without feeling too touristy). Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!
  • Surely one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. Super clean, with a brilliant public transport system extremely bike and pedestrian friendly
  • Very good food (the sauce might have been a touch salty, but that could have just been from the pork medallions). I'll give props to the mister on the balsamic vinegar. Might not have been fancy, but that sure did work wonderfully. Some of the best service I have ever received in Europe. Attentive, quick with recommendations (wonderful after dinner rum, thank you), and fairly priced. I was expecting a tourist trap of a place, but was absolutely wrong.
  • It was simply amazing such a wonderful city!
  • Best 5 months of my life, this city is hard to beat in terms of livability. It is so bikeable, the lifestyle is laid back, and the city itself is charming.
