  • Very, very beautiful park, the castle is very well maintained, all the furnishings are original. The tours are almost every hour and take around 40-50min. Very interesting architecture history.. worth a visit! Great for kids, parents, grandparents.. :)
  • Perfect place to hang out with friends. Nature is amazing, so peacocks are Right destination for weekend :)
  • Tranquil palace grounds. They had lots of peacocks moving about freely. The restaurant near the palace just outside the entrance was great too.
  • Nice park with lots of peacocks! You can easily spend some hours walking here.
  • Lovely and nice place. Closed during some parts of the year, but one can still visit the huge sorrounding lawns and garden here. The castle is also nice to visit

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.
