Austria Transportation: 114 reviews and 133 photos


Of course you can also step up the hill in order to get to the famous Grazer Uhrturm or to the old castle, but you can as well take a funicular, it is also included in the ticket for public transport in Graz !
The so-called Schlossbergbahn takes you up to the "Casmatten" - the old part of the fortification - there is a great park and an open-air theatre and plenty of places where you may relax or have a break in various restaurants.
The cable-car taking you up to the hight of 427 meters above sea-level is quite steep - 61%

The Schlossbergbahn is part of the GVB-Verbund-system
daytickets and ordinary bus/tramtickets are valid as well !
