Graz, one of Austria's most important and cultural tourist centres. A Mix of beautiful baroque architecture and modern design. The city boasts a laid-back Mediterranean atmosphere. For anyone who hasn't visited the city before we highly recommend that you climb the Schlossberg hill and see the city's famous clock tower and the beautiful charming city from a height. There are approximately 260 stairs to climb but, if that all sounds too strenuous then why not take the Scholssbergbahn funicular, a lift that is built into the hill. An interesting fact about Graz is that it’s the birthplace of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
