#1 of 55 in Parks in Styria
Nature / Park Must See
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. Add Grazer Schlossberg and other attractions to your Graz trip itinerary using our Graz trip itinerary planning tool .

  • In our opinion the Schlossberg (especially in winter) is a real dream! Definitely belongs to the "must Lakes" in Graz! The Outlook in the evening at sunset is gorgeous! We recommend also the climb via stairs, although exhausting, but worth it! Elevator can drive everyone ;) Otherwise you can not say much only caution (especially in the winter/fall), da wirds really slippery: P

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.
