The square is really nice, full of nice restaurants and stores in the surrounding. Check if there is any event up to come there, they are usually really nice and for free. :D

Walking down the streets converging here offers a chance to see the spectrum of Graz architecture. City is peaceful and picturesque.

The Hauptplatz, in front of the beautiful Rathaus, is a gorgeous square and where the tram stops are as well. In summer, Bean bags and hammocks are strewn about for people to read and lounge about. Outdoor cafes abound.

You will find a pretty sight at every corner, and a host of events on certain days of the week. Two tram stops connect this place to every major part of Graz.

The main square in Graz is lovely with amazing architecture and impressive buildings all around. The square is at the end of the main shopping street, well worth d walk through!

I saw this and thought it would be really scenic ang full of authentic, traditional market stalls. The buildings all around are lovely but the stalls are not market stalls but food joints. Basically takeaway huts. I still enjoyed walking through, but changing the huts to traditional market stalls world be much better.
