From city to the countryside in less than ten minutes – and vice versa. Both is easy in the region of Graz. And both is utterly enjoyable!
Countryside hikes or city strolls, cycling or swimming, museums or mountain huts: There’s plenty to see and do in the region of Graz. One thing should definitely be on your holiday list though: a visit to Graz, the provincial capital of Styria.
A trip to Graz is always a good idea. Amble through the World Heritage Old Town. Marvel at the fascinating contrasts between futuristic architecture and historic buildings. Or simply go on a shopping spree and hunt for bargains.
provincial capital of Styria, Austria’s second-biggest city, City of Design, university city, Knowledge City, UNESCO World Heritage and Austria’s only Capital of Delight. And the city lives up to each and every one of these titles!
However, there’s also many things that Graz is not. It’s not a big metropolis. It’s no hectic urban jungle. Despite its considerable size, the city is still a relaxed place. People ride the tram or their bike and have lunch at one of the many pavement cafés. Many locals still live in the city centre, and there’s a buzzing cultural scene with numerous events.
Theatre and opera, jazz and cabaret, Styrian and international cuisine: It’s not only tourists who appreciate the great diversity of the city by the Mur. If you’d like to get an idea of what’s on offer, have a look at the top sights of Graz.
