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.
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 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... :(
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.
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.
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.
Favorite thing: During the centuries, various architectural styles have blended in Graz and the result is beautiful, like this facade.
Favorite thing: When you are in Graz, you don’t have to worry about transport. Its not very massive city, I mean city centre so you could walk around the city centre without any problem.
