Create an itinerary including Altstadt von Graz
At Altstadt von Graz, see how different cultures from the neighboring regions shaped its townscape. A World Heritage Site and living museum, the Old Town mixes many architectural styles, from gothic to contemporary. Walk the narrow alleyways alongside the Italian-style palaces, medieval facades, and modern buildings. Take a cable car to reach the Schlossberg, which is the site of the 11th-century fortress. Stop at the clock tower, the symbol of Graz. Other important sights are the town hall, the mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II, the Kunsthaus, and the Dom--a Gothic cathedral. Along the route, you'll find many street cafes with quasi-Mediterranean flair. Put Altstadt von Graz on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Graz online road trip planner.

  • Graz is very romantic town. Austrian architecture really got me excited. Every building has its own unique style. I am sure that couples will find there something for themselves 🙂.
  • Best 5 months of my life, this city is hard to beat in terms of livability. It is so bikeable, the lifestyle is laid back, and the city itself is charming.
