In the old town, you can't miss it. A square of street food carts, music performers, you can also take the trams from here. The main shopping street also starts here. A bit touristy.

We had a morning walk in this area. It is a nice place to spend a few minutes, or hours, as there are restaurants around and also shops.

The central square of Graz where you can see markets (depending on time of year) street performers, catch a tram, enjoy food and/or a coffee and of course people watch. All surrounded by buildings with that old style Euro charm.

This is just a plaza in a somewhat touristy part of the city center. Lots of restaurants and shops to choose from. Lots of things to see very close by.

This is the central square in downtown, Altstadt Graz. It a lovely plaza surrounded with beautiful houses, dominated by a huge and terrific Classicist Town Hall. A lot of bars and restaurants are in that area and food stalls as well.

Heart of the old town of Graz, with tram stops, restaurants, cafes and street food vendors. It is, however, not large but surely you will not miss it when in Graz.

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,...More
