The reknown old square of the city, in front of the town’s hall is a meeting point after enjoying walks along the Graz streets. There are cafe’s to cater to thirst and hunger while viewing the slow buzzling streets ahead.

Great place to turn 360 degrees and get a feel for the place - old town Graz. It doesn’t matter which direction you walk in, you’ll find amazing baroque architecture, shops, Gelato places, hot dog stand, tram stop, etc.

We ate here, had a drink, people watched and shopped. Just like any typical Euro square. Obviously would go here again...you have to....its a square in Graz...everyone see it.
