Better check the open time first

We went there 3 times, finally could go into. The open time is pretty limited. The garden outside is quite pretty.

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 stroll through. While most businesses are closed at night, some few destinations are preferred night-time... More

It was not open the day of our visit (I assume because of the fest taking place in the city) we were very much impressed with the outside architecture. I am sure the interior is equally impressive.

Slightly pricey if you're not a student, but it is a unique place and is interesting inside. A good piece of Austrian culture, more interesting if you know the relevance! You can also go up the tower which has a great view and feels Notre-Dame-esque.

They say it's meant to one of the most beautiful mausoleums artistically in the world, and I can see why. Upstairs were two chapels with amazing marble altar pieces, although I'm not sure if there's actually room for a priest to say mass. It is topped by a beautiful dome filled with breathtaking paintings representing different scenes from the bible,... More

The building is great, beautiful and nicely decorated. You can see the sarcophagus of the emperor and his wife. The interior is lovely. You can also climb up the tower and enjoy the view of Graz. The fee for one adult is 6 € which is too much for what it has to offer. Yet if you are interested in... More

Hadn't expected this to be quite such a big mausoleum. Loved the space, the light, the marble, the domes. Also loved the painted marble....not sure what the name for this art style is, but very effective.

For two adults and two children we paid 16 euro. Once inside there was very little to see compared to the cathedral next door, which was free! The marble alters were made of painted wood and not real marble, the crypt is only viewed from a distance, and the walk to the roof is littered with bird droppings and dead... More
