Of course, as so often with Austrian attractions, it was under renovation when I visited. Just go up to Schlossberg and as you're getting down, pass by it. It's a nice clock tower, not much else to it, should see it though if you're in...More

The proud history of the clock tower and gardens are amazing. Options for everyone to access and appreciate the magnificent views and cultural gatherings. Surprisingly cool inside the rock tunnel that cuts across Graz from Trams, bars and restaurants to the University district. Just 260...More

With three way to get to the top of this granite outcropping, the remains of various fortresses have been woven into gardens and lookouts to survey the city. I used the elevator, buying a return in case I didn't walk the stairs (which I did.)...More

You can get there by climbing the 260 or so steps (free) or taking the elevator (for a fee). The clock tower is beautiful in itself but the view from next to it is mesmerizing. Worths the climb.

I absolutely love the Uhrturm and the entire area of Mt. Schlossberg. To get to the top, you can climb the 280+ steps, which is a good work out, but well worth it! Or, you can take the glass lift to the top (1.5 euros),...More

Quiet, green, top of the city place. I loved its surroundings, the view from above. We were there twice, once by foot - pretty steep, even through the milder paths, and the second time with a funicular (public transport ticket covers it as well). Great...More

We climbed the 260 steps to see Urhturm as we felt the cost of 7 Euro each for the elevator was excessive. It was worth it in the end. The clock and gardens were beautiful and there was a lot to see by waking around...More

Best place in Graz, with a wonderful view of the city over the roofs. You can go by using the elevator, the Schlossberg Bahn or the stairs (enjoying the view from several levels).

Gorgeous clock tower and gardens are reached by tram. Surprisingly cool inside the rock tunnel leading to the tram - this provided a nice break on a hot day. You can also walk the steps, 260 of them, up and/down and pay accordingly. Was a...More
