    Youthful feel

    by Imbi Written Dec 22, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Still, Graz always managed to maintain a youthful feel - not that you would expect anything else in a city where nearly one person in five is a student. The oldest university dates back to 1585 and, when surrounded by its red-tiled roofs, you could be forgiven for thinking for a moment that you'd stumbled across a tiny Toulouse. If they didn't all speak German and such very good English, of course.

    Riverside walks

    Hauptplatz, Graz

    Favorite thing: Take time out to walk along the river Mur, there are loads of lovely nature trails out of the city. Or even hire a bike and follow the river trails.

    Fondest memory: Puntigammer Radler, Tiramisu icecream,Cokky Nr 1 cookies .... trust me to focus on the food....

    My eye is such that it stops...

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: My eye is such that it stops on details rather than the full picture. Maybe it's because I'm short...;) Anyway, if you like the same, the area around the Main Square is where you'll surely spend some quality time. You can't miss it: cross the river Mur (after stepping off the train or parking your car) and head for the church you see in the intro. There!

    Fondest memory: I was pleasantly surprised to have found Graz alive and breathing on a Saturday afternoon. It's a good indicator of its spirit. Ljubljana is unfortunately always so empty... :(

    MInorite church and modern art

    Favorite thing: I love in Graz how harmoniously the new and the old blend with each other: in this case the Minorite church, the visual art and the sculpture of the Concrete Art project.

    River Mur

    The Mur with  the Kunsthaus

    Favorite thing: The river Mur divides the city of Graz and it's an orientation point for visitors. It's a shallow river and brings a natural atmosphere to the centre.

    Rooftop

    Favorite thing: Sometimes it's worth to look up in a city, there are nice little details on the rooftops or higher on the walls.
