There was no guided tour when we were there, but it was beautiful. Much more than I expected to see in a Mausoleum. Make sure to hang on to the handrail going down the steps. Don't forget to look up. Everything is decorated.

The entrance is quite cheap and the inside is beautiful, full of frescos and ancient decorations. There is a tomb in the lower level that looks fascinating.

There are certain places in Graz one must visit in order to claim they truly were in Graz. The Clock Tower is one such place, as well as Jakominiplatz, the Glockenspeil and of course the Mausoleum of Ferdinand II. Graz is a great town to...More
