Favorite thing: Graz is quite a small city and most of the attractions for tourists are in the very centre of town.
From the train-station " Graz Hauptbahnhof" you may take the trams #1, 3, 6, or 7 and will be at the Hauptplatz within 7-10 minutes.
There you may first take a look at the townhall, the Landhaus and Landeszeughaus.
Take the small street opposite of Landhaus and you will get to Glockenspielplatz with the chimes & plenty of restaurants in the so-called "Bermuda-triangle"
You may continue walking through Färbergasse to Sporgasse, turn to the right and get to Hofgasse , see the Hofbäckerei and walk to Burg, Dom and Mausoleum
Walk back to Sporgasse and walk down to Hauptplatz again...
Such a walk could be done easily during a short stop-over of 2 hours !


Fondest memory: Another possibility to explore Graz from Hauptplatz is to walk Sackstrasse and go to the Lift im Berg - go up Schlossberg and see the Uhrturm.
Also the Murinsel is just about 400 meters from the Hauptplatz.

On my picture : Schloss Eggenberg - it is into the other direction from the train-station, but you certainly need about 2 hours to get there, as the park is quite large and in a big distance to the trams.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
