Top sights in Graz
Schlossberg, looming some 1500 feet above the city centre, is the site of Graz's original fortress. There are several pretty paths that lead up to the top, but should you not want to walk to the top, there is the ""Schlossbergbahn"" that quickly and cheaply gets you up there. The views are great so bring your camera.
This exciting museum on the river looks a bit space-aged. It is a world-class contemporary art space with changing exhibitions every four months or so. The cost of admission is well worth it as is a guided tour. English and German tours that explain more about the exhibitions and the building are available daily.
Eggenberg castle was constructed on the western edge of Graz in 1625. There are daily guided tours of this castle in English that provide loads of information to help you get the most out of this fascinating building and art collection.
Hauptplatz and Town Hall
The Hauptplatz, or "main square", is located right in the middle of the old town. Here there are plenty of vendors selling food and drink and there are always street performers of some kind. Beautiful imperial buildings line the square, including the town hall, which was built in 1893.
This cathedral in the heart of Graz was constructed in the 15th century. The interior is adorned with Gothic and baroque elements. Of particular interest is the somewhat faded fresco on the cathedral’s exterior. It dates back to 1485 and depicts when Graz was thwarted by not only a Turkish invasion, but also the plague and locusts.
