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

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!

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

Nice to stop by here and have a mesmerizing walk over the double spiral staircase. You can both chose a side and meet up in the middle every time. Very much fun

After a little bit of detective work to find, mainly due to a poor map and reader, worth a visit on a walking tour of Graz. Interesting to climb and look down. Could be a little congested in busy periods. Something different yo see.

Just find it at the end of Hofstrasse just before the park. No fee - walk it up and then down and get your photos. A small gem during your strol in Graz.

This staircase is something very special, a worldwide really rare sight. It is a spiraling staircase, acutally a twin staircase built in the 16th century. Two staircases that meet on every floor, a beautiful sight. It is not too easy to find - so don't...More

Ancient. Hard to find. But worth to see and worth to climb. Ok, this is not gonna take an hour or two, its not a 15 floor building. But if you are already out for a walk in Graz' lovely old city center, you should...More
