Graz is Austria’s second largest city, and although known as a university city, there’s much more to it. With Graz car hire, it is really easy to explore and travel around. Vienna is not far away, nor are Slovenia and Hungary if you want to add additional countries and cultures to your trip.
Graz carries a somewhat laid-back charm, the architecture speaks volumes about the city’s uniqueness, none more so than the Kunsthaus Arts Centre which appears to be a suspended bubble. However, it’s the scenic beauty which takes the plaudits from most tourists, the Grazer Schlossberg mountain and its eye-catching fortress dominates the city and acts as a scenic backdrop, being edged by the River Mur. Walking tours are held on the mountain, although a more popular option is to climb aboard the local railway.
Another must see in Graz is Schloss Eggenberg Palace with its 24 rooms and Styrian Armory (Landeszeughaus) with enough equipment from the past to arm several battalions. On a sunny day, many locals decide to wander down to the Copacabana, a lively, lakeside party beach. There is also a City park (Stadtpark), where you can escape from daily routines and sounds.
A former European city of culture, Graz continues to live up to this reputation - a selection of quality museums and UNESCO World Heritage Sites underline its credentials.
