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.

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.
