The Styrian capital of Graz is the second largest city in Austria and has been asserting itself for years as the pleasure and culture capital of Austria.
As soon as you explore the old town, you soon realize that the regional culture mixes with the character of the south and is not called the northernmost city of the south for nothing, with more than 2,100 hours of sunshine a year. The Murinsel with its futuristic architecture and the Kunsthaus ideally complement the historic UNESCO-protected Old Town and result in the perfect blend of culture for every taste where authentic Styrian eateries meet modern international cuisine. Graz's Schloßberg imposes the center of the city, from where you can enjoy a beautiful view of the city and surrounding mountains all day long and find adventurous attractions both "on" and "in" the mountain.
For shopping lovers, the inner city with its many small streets offers a maze of regionally and internationally known stores, as well as the large shopping centers on the outskirts of the city. The many squares, markets and spacious green areas also offer numerous recreational opportunities for young and old.
