Take the cable car to the top and look out over the orange rooftops, the monumental Graz Cathedral and the blue domes of the imperial Mausoleum. To satisfy a sweet craving, head over to the Sporgasse and stop by the Hofbäckerei Edegger-Tax, the oldest bakery in Graz, or grab a table at the charming Hauptplatz square. Graz is the ideal destination for a city trip and the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Austria. Expect to be surprised: book a flight to Graz now!
Design city on the Mur
Graz is known for its surprising combination of old and modern architecture. Don’t miss the Kunsthaus: locals also call this fascinating building ‘the friendly alien’ because of the design and it’s a hotspot for contemporary design, film and photography. Pause for a coffee break at the Generalihof or the Herzogshof and then grab a streetcar to the Eggenberg Palace, which was designed according to the Gregorian calendar. If you are game, try counting the 365 windows and 52 doors. At night, the Island on the Mur – a striking steel construction designed by American artist Vito Acconci – is a charming spot to sip a cocktail.
