    Foot- and bycicle bridge

    Graz is quite compact, visitors can walk almost everywhere. This bridge is leading from the Cultural Capital 2003 Information Centre to the Schlossbergplatz (and the lift to the Clock Tower and the Dom in Berg art exhibition).

    Stairs to the Clock Tower

    Stairs to the Clock Tower

    It's probably a better idea to use these winding stairs on the way down than for climbing up, though it's quite a long way in both directions (between the Clock Tower and Schlossbergplatz). The view is nice on the way and there are benches in several places, so it's possible to take a break.

    By bicycle around Graz

    Bicycle parking

    Graz is not a too large city, and all sights can be comfortably visited by bicycle. That the city is prepared for bikers is proved - among others - by the existence of this bicycle parking place (by Herrengasse). Maybe it is not such a big deal, but I was impressed anyway.

    Airport view

    I am not sure about how far airport is from Graz city but it takes 8 minutes. Airport is around 400 yards from station. If you are lucky you could find trolley otherwise be prepared to carry your heavy language.
    It costs around 1.60 Euro, one way.

    Train

    The train station is perfect for weekend excursions, as there is a much wider choice of destinations eg
    Vienna South, Salzburg, Zurich, Ljubljana, Zagreb, Hungary.
    If you go further along the street up left from the Hauptplatz, you end up in Jakominiplatz, the main public transport hub of Graz.

    Trams 4&5 from the train station take you to Hauptplatz.

    Airport

    There is an airport south of Graz but most of the people I knew preferred to get the train to Vienna Schwechat and fly from there. AFAIK flights from Graz mainly service Vienna, Zurich and Frankfurt, Munich and other smaller airports in the German speaking area.

    You can park your car ( if you'll have luck and found empty place :) )in one of the streets that are very close to the center of town. And there are lot of garages for parking also almost in the center, but that's the more expensiver way for parking..
    In Graz you can use public transport..New, modern trams are very confortable.

    Railway lines are excellent from places like Vienna and Salzburg. Autobahns bring you there from both as well. It's similar from Slovenian side - take a Vienna train from Ljubljana or Maribor or the respective motorway. Hint: from Maribor take a side road to Sentilj (Spielfeld) which will save you the highway toll and get you to the border in almost the same time.

    As everything else, city trams in Graz are also relaxing (green) and very comfortable. I like this colour for city transportation!

    Graz trams

    I love that all Graz trams look different (wear all kinds of ads and also there are different models).
    The website presents a great collection of Graz tram photos.
