By taking the number 1 tram to the terminal stop (Mariatrost direction) you arrive at Basilika Mariatrost. Climb the 216 steps to arrive at the Basilica Entrance, or walk up the asphalt road. The interior is stunning, and you get a relaxed feeling. The tram ride is the best in Graz, beautiful houses and gardens, and when you arrive there... More

Even though we lived in Graz in the past, when we visited this year, we took the time to visit Mariatrost. The views from the hilltop, where it sits on the edge of Graz, are fantastic. You can walk all the way around the church, and enjoy a meal at the cafe behind it. The church is from the 1700s,... More

This is an impressive basilica and one of the great sights of Graz, both artistically and religiously. The pulpit is extraordinary and throughout there is a wealth of religious art. It is easy to find - just take the tramline to the end (to the tram museum) and it is a few yards away (but there are steps to climb... More

It is not located in the city of Graz, but it is easy to get to it by tram. Baroque interior is impressive.

This Basilica is well worth going to visit. Easy to get to, tram number 1 stops right by it, the tram museum is also in Mariatrost and also right by the tram stop. Great views as well. If you can't walk up the steps to get to the Basilica, walk up the road instead, it's easier or if you are... More

One of the larger monasteries in this region; as usual, beautiful Baroque interior. Be aware to get to it you will climb a large number of steps (unless you have a car); toilets on the left of the Church itself and cafe at the rear. The tram also goes here and at the other end of the same line is... More

Beautiful baroque basilica. The exterior was not that impressive but the interior is out of the world. Definitely worth a visit.
