Uhrturm, Graz

(4.7/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Climb to the top of Uhrturm, the medieval clock tower offering a panoramic view of the city. Originally built as a medieval defense tower, the city paid Napoleon a ransom in 1809 to keep it from being destroyed when the other fortifications on the hill overlooking the city were conquered. The clock is unique in that the large hand shows the hour and the small one minutes. The small hand was added much later since the large one could be seen from the town at the bottom of the hill. Those with mobility challenges should take the tram or elevator to the top of the tower. Put Uhrturm at the forefront of your travel plans using our Graz travel itinerary planner.

  • In view of the city at a glance ... If you look at the landscape of the mind is cool and. .. The length is a little climb high and very eligible for morning exercise. ..

  • Wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Plenty of cafes, nice walk, great view, near city center. At least two ways of getting up there, cable car or lift.  more »
  • When adrete in Graz one of the places that definitely will visit several times will own the Scholossberg, besides the beautiful walk with a thousand variations of the place will make you appreciate the spectacle of a city from above, over the period of the Christmas markets is all a scent and colour of celebration, but as has happened to us with snow is something splendid.

  • The town's landmark. A definitive must-see for every tourist. With a nice garden, a panorama café, the "Kasemattenbühne" open air-stage and a lot of other attractions nearby.
  • Beautiful Clock, awesome view! Get ready for going up! ;)
  • Very beautiful view to the city, the clock tower is really nice as well. If you are in graz then you must go there - it's worth it
  • Lovely view on all of Graz! Must visit! You can come up either by stairs from one side, or by foot up hill or by elevator :) from the bottom of the hill.
  • Standing tall at the south edge of the Schlossberg is the "Uhrturm" , the city's emblem. It can be reached by a number of strenuous paths and also by lift or Schlossbergbahn funicular for the cost of just a regular city transport ticket.
