We went up twice - once with the elevator and the second with the tram. Beautiful view of the city. Small hand on the clock is for minutes and large hand was for the hours - a reversal from normal clocks.

It is a short walk from the central square. The hill is steep but OK for most people. View is nice although in March lot of things still closed!

Wonderful way to spend an afternoon. Plenty of cafes, nice walk, great view, near city center. At least two ways of getting up there, cable car or lift.

There are 2 ways to get up: with funicular are by stairs. I took the stairs. If you aren`t type of person for hiking I recommed you a funicular. But, when you come to the top, the view is absoulty amazing!

Nice place to vist, lots of historical facts. Everything nice explained on signs next to attraction. Great wiev, you can see whole Graz from that point. You can go there by gondola, lift or walk. We used lift because gondolas were under maintance ( from 31.1. - 26.2.)

You can get here two ways--either via a funicular which runs until 10 pm each night or by way of a brisk uphill hike. Either way, the view from the top is amazing. On a clear day, you can see for probably 30km or more. There is an interesting story about this place: it used to be a castle, built... More

It is a nice stroll up to the "Uhrturm" - a little steep at times - but then you get rewarded with a view that is absolutely breathtaking view over the city of Graz and the surroundings.
