Walk around Grazer Schlossberg, the public park offering extensive views of the city, and home to a fortress, castle, and clock tower. Sit down and relax on benches and grassy areas throughout the park, take in a show at one of the entertainment venues, and enjoy a meal at one of the cafes or restaurants. Explore the walking paths across the park, and walk or take the elevator or funicular to the top of the hill for the best views of the city. Dress in layers for warmth, as the top of the hill can be windy. Put Grazer Schlossberg into our Graz travel itinerary planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Graz.

  • Short ride, great view, efficient service if you can't climb up under your own steam. Great experience for the kids. The cars are mostly in the shade but the glass ceiling and little ventilation makes it challenging in 30+ degrees
  • Great views of the city and surrounding area. Nice streets to walk around and grab a drink or listen to people playing music. Can walk up or take the elevator within the mountain.
  • Great place to hang out. It seems to be a good place for children as well. The view of the city is amazing!
  • Amazing views of the city, well worth climbing the 200+ steps for. Very peaceful and pleasant gardens. A lovely place just to wander around.
  • 260 steps to climb, but it's really worth it. The city view is absolutely wonderful and after all the hard climbing you can enjoy a traditional austrian beer, a good coffee and some local food at the restaurant next to the tower.
