Graz and Region of Graz
Home to Austria’s Most Famous Clock Tower
Styria’s capital Graz is a vibrant city with lots of attractions that are worth a visit. The historic centre is a UNESCO World Heritage site. Are you passionate about culture? The castle hill (“Schlossberg”) in the city centre with Austria’s most famous clock tower on top, the baroque Eggenberg Palace, the “Island in the Mur” (“Murinsel”), the “Kunsthaus”, a contemporary building hosting an art museum, the museum “Joanneum” and the “Zeughaus” that displays the world’s largest preserved historical armoury - the list of sights is long. There’s plenty of things to discover in the surroundings as well. Go up the most popular mountain on the outskirts of Graz, the Schöckl. Do you prefer visiting the open-air museum in Stübing? Don’t miss out on exploring the karst cave “Lurgrotte” and entering the historic Rein Abbey. A cycle tour along the river Mur or across the undulating hills of the Graz Highlands is the best way to uncover the essence of Styria.

Graz provides a huge diversity in a relatively small area. Stroll through the historic city centre, past lovely hidden courtyards, bath in southerly sunshine and enjoy the Mediterranean flair in summer, marvel at contrasting architectural styles with contemporary buildings standing next to medieval houses. There’s so much to see in Graz! Standing on top of the “Schlossberg” (“castle hill”) featuring the famous Clock Tower, you can take in the most beautiful view of the outstanding roofscape in the historic city centre.
Food & Drinks
Graz is Austria’s Capital of Culinary Delights. For a good reason. An abundance of high-quality produce grows on the fertile lands surrounding Graz. It’s used in the excellent restaurants in the city. Visit the farmer’s markets on the squares “Kaiser-Josef-Platz” and “Lendplatz”. You’ll be amazed by the colourful variety of fruits and vegetables and the vibrant atmosphere.
Culinary events such as the “Long Table of Graz” (“Lange Tafel”), an open-air fine dining experience on the main square, the truffle festival and culinary city tours are the best proof: Graz is the capital of culinary delights and the capital for foodies.
Shopping in Graz
Graz is a great city for shopping. It’s especially charming to stroll through the historic centre. This way, you can combine shopping with a sightseeing tour. The main street is called “Herrengasse”. It’s a pedestrian zone. But you should also explore the alleyways and discover small, creative shops. It’s worth it!
The district Lend with the square “Lendplatz” and the street “Mariahilferstraße” is a creative hot spot featuring a great number of design shops.
Farmer’s markets, flea markets or annual shopping events - the markets in Graz are inviting you to take a stroll, have a look around and buy a souvenir to take home. Look forward to great moments of joy. You won’t go home empty-handed.
Region of Graz
There’s plenty of things to discover in the region of Graz. Go out of the city and hit the countryside! We recommend hiking on the Schöckl on the outskirts of the city. You can also take the cable car up there. The ravine “Kesselfallklamm” features an impressive, roaring mountain stream. In the karst cave “Lurgrotte”, you’ll enter a fascinating underground world. Get an insight into the daily life and work of farmers and peasants as it used to be in the open-air museum in Stübing. Modern art is at the heart of the sculpture park in Unterpremstätten.
