We only had a short time to explore Graz but our venture started here. Graz is a beautiful city with lots of cool things to see. This area however is perfect to take some time to relax in the sunshine and watch everyone go by

Is the centre of town, always nicely busy, major tram stops, wurst stands with the Rathaus as backdrop and major statue in the middle. Interesting in Advent when the Rathaus turns into an advent calendar. Meet you under the Weikhard Uhr!!!!

This is the place to: hangout and people watch; grab a frankfurt mit senf and semmel at one of the würstlstands; enjoy the building facades that survived world war 2; and be amazed at how noone seems to get hit by a strassenbahn.

Enjoy shopping and people watching in this stately relaxed location. Many quaint streets with interesting boutiques & art stores tucked off the main routes. Many well know stores on the main streets.

A few minutes from the river and you will discover the main place in the city center. Enjoy the decorated houses like luegghaus with Swarovski shop inside, the flowers all around. There was a market with local bio products, we saw a carver carving with...More

Beautiful square with lots of photo-op moments just one snap away. The colours make the experience 10x better, so if you're photography-friendly make sure you don't leave the house without your camera. You may be lucky enough to find some events going on, like food...More
