Austria's second biggest city is known for it's universities, culture, and well-preserved city center, which is a UNESCO zone. Graz played host to Europe's cultural capital in 2003. The rich concentration of gorgeous buildings showcasing Renaissance, Gothic, and Baroque architecture can easily be explored by foot. For a view over the city, climb the Schlossberg.

The locals in Graz kept saying that tourists never visit Graz, yet they have a tour bus taking people around this picturesque city. With a permanent population of 250,000 this is a very manageable city to visit. There's lots of attractive architecture and the city centre features a huge park as well as a mountain and a river. The 50,000 students attending the 6 universities keep the central core lively with many bars and cafes.

As close to five stars as you can get - so many places in Austria are. Graz is conveniently located and is full of historic charm, excellent food, reasonable accommodations and great proximity to other day trips. I would go back in a minute!

My hometown, so I may not be impartial, but I love it.
The Historic Centre and Schloss Eggenberg are an UNESCO World Heritage.
Feel free to ask me questions about Graz if you need further information!

I was relly impressed by this Austrian city. It is a perfect mix of historical monuments and sights and contemporary buildings. I was totally impressed by the khunsthaus and Murinsel bridge. I really appreciated its smartness and innovative spirit.
