Seriously one of the better city parks. Endless trails. Lots of great views over Graz. Once you are away from the touristy part, there is literally no one. The clock tower is nice. Plenty to do. Can easily spend the better part of a day here.

Great for a visit any time. Good views, nice to walk up - there are more options, some going via big park. Funicular is interesting too, and the path going through a tunnel..

Short review - one of the top ranked eateries in Graz and justifiably so. Great surroundings (as is typical of many in Graz) but just that grade above

Nice climb up to the top with very nice views. Can spend the whole morning up walking around. In winter it seems a lot of the restaurants are closed, but we had some nice warm drinks with a nice view. Would probably be even nicer in spring.

Two stops from the main square is the entrance to the furnicular - ultra modern it quickly brings you to the top. Even in wind the walk around the top is worth it - for the view, the interesting reminders of various events and the famous clock tower. After seeing the clock tower walk down the staircase - it's pretty... More

It‘s worth to climb the 260 stairs up to the Schlossberg (but there is a lift, too), even when it gets dark the stairway and the hill are well illuminated. The first thing you will see up there is a landmark of Graz - the clock tower. But there‘s much more to see - remains of citadel, nice campanile, cellars,... More

A small but nice city of Graz amazed me by its beauty. Everywhere you go there is a chance to see some piece of art. Schlossberg is one of the places you have to see! With its Clock Tower (Uhrturm) and delicious Glühwein! (Be cautious it might make you dizzy😉) Served in a nice Christmas cup (if you visit in... More

We had a great time walking the markets and visiting the area. There is a fantastic view from here as well.

If you are still deciding, so stop and go there! Yes, it is high and there are a lot of stairs, but the view is just amazing, the park and hill is breathtaking and it is completely for free so really really the best thing we've done in Graz!! They just forced me to go down, I wanted to stay... More

Every time I cross the Slovenian border into Austria a concert of classical music starts playing in the back of my mind. When walking along the streets of Vienna, Salzburg or Bad Ischl there's always that hum of Strauss' "On the air blue Danube" waltz. The images are almost always the same: men with huge gray moustache/beard/sideburns striding along with... More
