We took the tram to the end of the line and had a vigorous walk up the hill to the church. Beautiful church and vista! Well worth the trip. Nice to get out of city and see some countryside too! The church was outstanding itself.

The Basilika lies on the top. We can easily see the building from any direction. Good to walk up to the basilika. Inside is also beautiful

Although this involves a fairly steep climb up from the tram station, the effort is very worthwhile. The building itself is magnificent, and the interier is just breathtaking. The only small issue is that during the winter months they close the steps so access is...More

Take the tram 1 to Maria Trost to see this beautiful basilica church. Then walk back to Himmteich and further on. A lovely route back through larch forest.

Mariatrost is a gorgeous church, well worth a visit when in Graz. Take the Strassenbahn Line 1 to the end. You will then walk a couple hundred feet to the bottom of the stairs. Be ready to climb 160 of them to get to the...More

We caught the No 1 tram and linked bus to the base of the Church. Very easy from Graz. The climb up the 260 steps is a little tough for some people which we noticed. The Basilica is beautiful outside and inside. Well worth the...More

The Basilika is quite far from the Graz city center but worth a trip. We could take a tram but it was more comfortable going by car. Nice trip to the outskirts, with great views and impressive church!
