The Freiblick Café Lounge is on the 6th floor of the Kastner & Öhler Department store in city center Graz. We walked through the store to reach the escalators to ride up to this roof top café with indoor and outdoor seating, so we could see how elegant the store is. There is a beautiful view of old town Graz, including the clock tower.
The menu was in German, so we asked the waiter to recommend something, and we had a dish the waiter described as like Beef Stroganoff. Well not quite, but it was tasty. It was also the daily special.
Since the sun was bright and it was a warm day, we opted to eat inside. We choose a low table and some comfy overstuffed chairs; the other interior choice were high bar style tables, or the counter. A wheel chair person might opt to eat outside.
Nice clean restrooms adjacent to the café.
Breakfast is served from 09:30 to 16:00.
Snacks are available from 09:30 - 18:00
In the evening, the location can be rented for private parties

After shopping in K&Ö this is the place to chill and get perfectly decorated meals and great spritzers.
I recommend breakfast for two persons.
Saturdays you should make a reservation because it is always full.,,,, nice view for pictures ✔️

This cafe is well worth the visit after shopping or walking around Graz.

The views are great with a platform to take videos or photos.

The menu is quite broad covering meals throughout the day. Drink menu is also broad. Seating is comfortable both inside and outside. There are umbrellas for shade.

Service is very quick and the quality of the food excellent. We loved the French Toast and also the salad with pumpkin seed oil.

Highly recommended.

The Freiblick is a Tagescafé and part of Kastner & Öhler, the oldest and most prestigious department store (established in 1873) in the Old Town of Graz. From this rooftop café you get a whole new perspective on the Old Town of Graz, a UNESCO world heritage site. So the terrace is ideal to soak up the sun and to enjoy the view onto the many medieval roofs of the well-preserved Old Town of Graz. There is also a glass platform hanging over the Sackgasse to get a better look into the main street of Graz, the Herrengasse. So if you want to take a stunning photo of the Old Town of Graz with its rooftops and marvelous buildings, this place is ideal for this endeavor.

In this popular place we had a cappuccino, which was delicious and the staff is friendly and willing to help, even brought us extra pillows to sit on. This place is really a jewel in the rooftops of Graz and from here you have (one of) the best view onto the most famous landmark of Graz, the Clock Tower (Uhrturm) on the castle hill. The opening hours are aligned to the prestigious department store with tradition, Kastner & Öhler, meaning the Freiblick closes early at 7 pm weekdays and on Saturday at 6 pm. Sunday it is closed like the department store. But since this place is famous for its view the Freiblick is to be visited during the day, as 'Freiblick' in German can be translated as 'panorama view'.

From Graz with Love!
