Top 10 sights in Graz 

Grazer Uhrturm
As one of Graz' most important landmarks, the Uhrturm sits on the Schlossberg above Graz.

Kunsthaus Graz
With its distinct bubble-shaped form, this modern art museum stands out from the cityscape and is always worth a visit, no matter the season.

Island in the Mur
Built in 2003 on the occasion of Graz being the European Capital of Culture, the steel construction by artist Vito Acconci that connects both riverbanks, has become an integral part of the city.

Eggenberg Palace
Located on the edge of the city centre this palace with its adjacent gardens forms part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage Sites since 2010.

Are you in the mood for time travelling? Then you should visit the Styrian Armoury with a staggering number of 32,000 exhibits of equipment items from the medieval times, presented in a historic environment.

Landhaus Courtyard
Sneak a peek at the marvellous inner courtyard of the Landhaus, the Styrian regional parliament. The fantastic Renaissance art is sure to leave a lasting impression on visitors.

At Glockenspielplatz square the small couple dressed in traditional costumes pirouettes three times a day (11.00 am, 3.00 pm and 6.00 pm) to different melodies.

An imperial place of rest next to the cathedral with the turquoise dome standing out against the rest of the city.

Grazer Dom
Discovering the magnificent architecture of the cathedral should be high up on anyone's list of things to do in Graz. Inside the cathedral, a multitude of ecclesiastical and historical treasures is waiting to be discovered.

Burg and Double Spiral Staircase
The Burg, housing the regional government, is a real gem. Centuries of reconstruction have yielded interesting elements of the Gothic, Renaissance and Biedermeier eras. Particularly striking is the 'reconciliation staircase', seeming almost like an optical illusion.
