Altstadt von Graz, Graz

4.7
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 .

  • This is a great place to walk around, particularly at Christmas time. It is very much like walking into the past. There are several worthwhile shops and the bakeries are outstanding. I particularly like Sorger. In general, the ambiance is wonderful. Just meander!
  • A place for everything - from shopping to exploring, from pub crawls to great pizza. If you are a tourist, you have to really visit the museums, the spiral staircase of love, and the restaurants to grab an austrian sized bite in the meantime
  • Nice city with beautiful main square.
  • Lovely place with beutiful colourful old buildings.
  • Graz is beautiful with a large number of restaurants and cafes to enjoy. Schnitzel is the most popular food served at most restaurants. In the evenings you'll find most people enjoying long dinners for 2+ hours.
