Hidden away, but a definite must see in Graz. Great to walk up and down. Seek it out for some exercise!

It is spectacular and amazing how this was built 500 years ago. That said it will take you max 10 min to walk to the top and down again. But it’s free! And close to the Dom and the Mausoleum so why not spend those...More

If you can find it this is a very interesting construction but will only occupy you for about 10mins. It is free to see and very unique and I would definitely suggest seeing it if you are close by but do not make a special...More

According to our walking tour guide, this is sometimes referred to as the lover's staircase because two people climbing from separate steps will keep meeting over and over. Come visit with another person to make it easier to figure out what's going on.

Approximately less than 100 steps to the top with the two sides. They are merged in three places. I recommend a visit with couples.

These stairs are straight out of a fairy tale movie. They are tucked away in the courtyard of the Grazer Burg. Built for Emperor Maximilian I around 1500, they are a blast to walk up, but alas they don't go anywhere at the top so...More

When you arrive at the top, you are required to pay 4EU each for the pleasure! The view is fine, but Graz does not have a lot of memorable buildings to see from this vantage point. I would not consider doing this on a windy...More

We were told by our friend who lives in Graz that we should stop at Doppelwendeltreppe and we are glad we did ! We had a good map and it was not hard to find! The double staircase is intriguing!
