Going up to the Uhrturm can be quite exhausting. But if you use the lift or the furnicular, it is a nice trip up the hill. On top of it, you'll have an amazing view over Graz! Also, you can have a picnic in the green gras or under a tree! Pretty romantic :D

I have walked up the hill half a dozen times over two visits to Graz and have never tired of it. Interesting architecture and statues, pleasant gardens and good views. The Clock Tower dominates the skyline so it is hard not to be tempted to take the walk up.

Perfect place to enjoy a global view of Graz; it's worth the walk and on top there is a coffee and a nice castle. Enjoyable place

The highlight of the city! You should deffinitely walk up if you have a chance - it sure is a bit tiring, but the beautiful view of the city makes it a bit easier. If you're not happy with climbing hundreds of stairs - use the lift!

We walked up, but there is also an elevator. Great view on the top with strategically placed cafés. We were here during midday in sunny weather. I'm pretty sure this top is worth a visit during sunset.

We travelled up by lift and down by funicular. It is pleasant to wander around the top but signposting could be improved. As it was Christmas market time we were able to wander through the various stalls up there and enjoyed talking to the local people.

The clock tower is a nice piece of architecture, indeed, to climb the 260 stairs pays back:-). The great views of Graz are more than worth it, too. But I advise you to take a longer stroll on the Schlossberg, there's much more to see than the clock tower and only that makes the experience complete and an excellent one.
