  • If you are in Graz and you have enough from the hustle and bustle in the city - then the Schlossberg is the ideal, easily accessible nearby recreation destination. Coming either from the romantic rise over the staircase from the Sackstrasse (war platform) or via the Sporgasse. The Schlossbergbahn or also the elevator/lift which can be reached on the Schlossberg course (sack Street) is recommended for people who are not good at foot.

  • Great view of the city, after a considerable hike. The ascent is constant and real steep, but worth it, especially if the day is open and even better if you can wait for the sunset.

  • Nice climb up to the top with very nice views. Can spend the whole morning up walking around. In winter it seems a lot of the restaurants are closed, but we had some nice warm drinks with a nice view....  more »

  • Awesome view, visited today and the weather made it beautiful, a bit confusing as not many signs. The Lift was good, but expensive, could not ride the Bahn(little train) cause of technical problems. But was worth the visit. Graz Beautiful..
  • Schloßberg is wonderfull when the weather is good, a place that I often forget when in Graz, but is one of my favourite spots in town.
  • It is a really nice place in Graz where you can enjoy of a very good sight of the city and even get some drinks or food from some nice restaurants. If you dont want to hike up there you can use one lift settle on the closest side to the river.
  • Nice views and sunsets from up here. Also, if you have the yearly transport card (jahreskarte) you get to take the funicular rail up and down for free.
  • The Schloßberg is a definite must-see when you're in Graz. It offera spectacular views over the city and some nice walks.
