There are 2 ways to get up: with funicular are by stairs. I took the stairs. If you aren`t type of person for hiking I recommed you a funicular. But, when you come to the top, the view is absoulty amazing!

Nice place to vist, lots of historical facts. Everything nice explained on signs next to attraction. Great wiev, you can see whole Graz from that point. You can go there by gondola, lift or walk. We used lift because gondolas were under maintance ( from 31.1. - 26.2.)

You can get here two ways--either via a funicular which runs until 10 pm each night or by way of a brisk uphill hike. Either way, the view from the top is amazing. On a clear day, you can see for probably 30km or more. There is an interesting story about this place: it used to be a castle, built... More

It is a nice stroll up to the "Uhrturm" - a little steep at times - but then you get rewarded with a view that is absolutely breathtaking view over the city of Graz and the surroundings.

Going up to the Uhrturm can be quite exhausting. But if you use the lift or the furnicular, it is a nice trip up the hill. On top of it, you'll have an amazing view over Graz! Also, you can have a picnic in the green gras or under a tree! Pretty romantic :D

I have walked up the hill half a dozen times over two visits to Graz and have never tired of it. Interesting architecture and statues, pleasant gardens and good views. The Clock Tower dominates the skyline so it is hard not to be tempted to take the walk up.

Perfect place to enjoy a global view of Graz; it's worth the walk and on top there is a coffee and a nice castle. Enjoyable place

The highlight of the city! You should deffinitely walk up if you have a chance - it sure is a bit tiring, but the beautiful view of the city makes it a bit easier. If you're not happy with climbing hundreds of stairs - use the lift!

We walked up, but there is also an elevator. Great view on the top with strategically placed cafés. We were here during midday in sunny weather. I'm pretty sure this top is worth a visit during sunset.

We travelled up by lift and down by funicular. It is pleasant to wander around the top but signposting could be improved. As it was Christmas market time we were able to wander through the various stalls up there and enjoyed talking to the local people.
