  • Clock Tower

    Magical landmark
    Something's odd here – but just what? This thought pops into everyone’s head when they stand before the city's landmark, the Clock Tower, on Graz Castle Hill. The answer: the long hand shows the hours, the short hand the minutes. The 28 m high tower – whose core is said to date back to the 13th century – is also very special in every other respect. That's because the views from its base of Graz and the surrounding countryside are simply breathtaking – not to say magical.

  • Town Hall and Main Square

    The heart of the city
    The busy market stalls, happy newly-weds on the square outside the Town Hall, irresistible shop windows and entertaining street artists: Graz Main Square, overlooked by the town hall, is full of attractions and surrounded by wonderful buildings. Daytime or night, this is the best place to feel the city's heartbeat. All the sights are just moments from the Main Square, either on foot or by tram. It's the hub of public life.

  • Cathedral and Mausoleum

    Imperial-royal church architecture
    As a traveller, it is good to take time occasionally and just be still. Graz cathedral is the perfect place to enjoy some peace and find inspiration. With its Gothic architecture and Baroque interior, this magnificent sacred building is a haven of devotion. Right next door to it is the mausoleum with the turquoise roof cupola that houses the mortal remains of Emperor Ferdinand II.

  • Landhaushof

    Great for photographs
    A piece of North Italian architecture lies at the heart of Graz's Old Town in the form of the "Landhaushof", the Landhaus Courtyard. The design by Italian architect Domenico dell'Allio for this prestigious building is still home to the Styrian regional government today. The wonderful courtyard with arcades and corridors on all three floors and the bronze fountain does sterling duty as a popular subject for photographs. And every year at Advent, the famous Graz nativity scene is created here – from around 50 tonnes of crystal clear ice!

  • Charming farmers' markets

    The best straight from the farm
    The farmers' markets are already a hive of activity before the sun has properly risen above the rooftops of Graz. The region's farmers are busy laying out freshly-harvested and home-made produce on their stands. Juicy apples and bright red tomatoes, fresh flowers, pumpkin seeds, crispy bread, ham and cheese: filling a shopping basket is pure pleasure. With 800 city farmers, Graz has Europe's largest density of market days. The Kaiser Josef Market and the market on the Lendplatz take place every morning except Sundays.

  • Opera and theatre

    Wagner or Strauss
    Graz's opera house has a long tradition. It also has an excellent reputation as a stage for performances of Wagner and Richard Strauss, and has launched very many of Austria’s best known artists on their international careers. So why not take in an opera? Or perhaps visit the theatre? In 2012, author Daniel Kehlmann received the Nestroy Theatre Award for "Geister in Princeton" ("Ghosts in Princeton"), which premiered here.
