Graz is home to 2 UNESCO World Heritage sites
Six universities make Austria’s second-city Graz a place where youthful exuberance gives historic buildings a new lease of life. Nowhere captures the forward-looking atmosphere better than the landmark futuristic Kunsthaus contemporary art gallery.
Graz (2h30 trip from Vienna) is proud to have the largest medieval old town in Europe. Among the most beautiful streets, you will find the Herrengasse, Sporgasse and Sackstrasse. During your walk, discover beautiful courtyards as the Renaissance courtyard of the Landhaus or the Herzoghof.
Buy the 24 hours transport ticket and take any tram to the Südtirolerplatz in order to contemplate two masterpieces of modern architecture: the river Mur Island with its giant shell and the Kunsthaus building. From the Schlossberg hill you will enjoy the best views of the city.
Head to Hauptplatz, the main square, where you will find beautiful buildings with renaissance and baroque façades. At 11:00 am, 3:00 pm and 6:00 pm, you can watch musicians playing carillon at the Glockenspielplatz square.
Be sure to visit the castle of Eggenberg (take tram 1), a baroque jewel with large gardens, where you will be received by a peacock.
At dinner time discover the charming restaurants in the Glockenspielplatz, Mehlplatz, Schmiedgasse or Sackstrasse. Sample the culinary delights of the region such as the Schilcher Rahmsuppe (creamy soup with rose wine from the region), the Käferbohnen mit Kernöl (big red beans with pumpkin seed oil), the Vulcan Schinken (Styrian ham), and the Steirisches Wurzelfleisch (cooked beef) accompanied by a glass of Sauvignon Blanc.
