Graz can be introduced quickly: epicurean capital, the town of red roofs and of the clock tower with its varied history. Baroque buildings, idyllic courtyards and futuristic art, such as the Kunsthaus gallery on the River Mur and the Murschnecke (Mur Snail), the steel café in the middle of Styria's main river. It is a meeting point for art and culture, the southern flair for modern living and enjoyable experiences - welcome!
However, the area surrounding the region's capital is also worth mentioning. Graz's local mountain, the Schöckl, has an almost Alpine character.
The Rettenbachklamm (Rettenbach Gorge), which is practically in the middle of the town, will enchant you with its little torrents and steep tracks leading to the top. The Murradweg also runs through Graz and takes you to the south of the state. To wine and thermal spas. To Maribor, Graz's sister town.
It is also no distance to the Lurgrotte, the Freilicht Museum in Stübing and Rein Abbey.
