Old and beautiful

Located at the heart of old town, offers a fantastic view over the Schlossberg. You could find an array of Coffeehouses there.

Eh....it's just another town square. Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love Graz, but I didn't feel as though Hauptplatz was exceptional. There are a lot of restaurants and shops nearby, which is nice, but it also felt a bit touristy. Branch out a bit, and you can explore more authentic parts of the city.

I went there for the Christmas fairs and it was just wonderful! Delicious punsch and mulled wine with waffles, baked potatoes and anything that gets you in the mood for Christmas

in the old town, a very lively place with a marketplace, food and many shops around. A good spot to start hanging around in Graz

The Hauptplatz and Herrengasse are just beautiful, along with the fantastic building the Rathaus which stands in its "full glory". I spend a lot of time around this area at the Wurstel Stands eating the lovely sausages and of course having ocal Gosser beer. Spend time looking at the buildings which are beautiful.

I'm not sure of the history of the city or this square, but it had some fantastic architecture. Tons of street cars came into the square so it's a main transport hub.
