Altstadt von Graz, Graz

4.8
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.

  • Graz is still a "secret tip". The second largest city of in Austria offers no extraordinary highlights but small and fine sights. An extremely pleasant city with a touch Mediterranean flair. Excellent restaurants and nice pubs and many gems that are discover.

  • I grew up here and I just like this city. Worth seeing are the old town with its narrow streets and pubs, as well as the Schlossberg

  • The old town of Graz is a real gem - many beautiful, historically valuable buildings. Also for shopping, Graz offers some interesting shops - some still in private hands - not only all usual transactions of multinational chains. Hopefully, Graz retained his flair.

  • The old part of the town, awarded the title of world heritage site, Unesco develops between the beautiful Hauptplatz where stands the statue of Archduke Johann up to embrace the picturesque alleys of the Center (Sporgasse is the emblem), the magnificent palaces of various eras and styles, the Cathedral and the Castle Scholssberg which constitute it. A harvest and pleasant old town!

Where to stay in Graz

Austria’s second-largest city offers a large selection of accommodation options for every type of traveler. Outside of the city’s core in the Lend district are more affordable lodgings. Roughly a ten-minute walk to the Altstadt, this area provides an economical alternative while still keeping you close to the attractions. If you’re willing to compromise on privacy, the best prices are in private accommodations in local homes. Often this means sharing a bathroom with other guests and occasionally even the homeowners.
