Full description

Get to know Graz inside out with a licensed local guide. Explore the historic center, inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List, and discover its most important monuments. Immerse yourself in local history and legends. Choose from a 2-, 3-, 4- and 6-hour tour. Meet your guide and discover the best-selected highlights of Graz. Explore the beautiful churches, palaces, and monuments of the Old Town, such as the Church of Trinity and Palais Khuenburg. Experience the lively atmosphere of the old Market Square and admire the Rathaus.

Learn about the political, social, and economic life of Graz. See the famous Oper Graz, the second-largest opera house in Austria, the 17th-century Mausoleum of Kaiser Ferdinand II, and the 15th-century Cathedral. Climb a secret double staircase in the Burg to enjoy an optical illusion and views.

If you have chosen the 2-hour option, your tour will end at the elegant Sporgasse street. The longer tours will continue inside Graz Cathedral, the crown jewel of Graz's churches. Discover its amazing royal-imperial architecture, which is inconspicuous from the outside but contains hidden treasures.

Admire the cathedral's rare Gothic fresco paintings and other artworks. Then, head up to the iconic Clock Tower, one of the most important symbols of Graz. For an additional fee, your licensed guide can take you to the top of the tower for unparalleled views of the city. If you have chosen the 4- or 6-hour version, your tour continues with an exploration of the fascinating collections of the Landeszeughaus. Enjoy skip-the-line tickets to avoid the long queues. Discover four floors of exhibitions of 32,000 exhibits from the 15th to 18th centuries.

Finally, the 6-hour continues with a visit to the Schlossberg branch of the Graz Museum, where you can delve deeper into the history of Graz. Explore the museum's comprehensive and varied collection of exhibits and the fascinating secrets of the city. Walk around the Schlossberg and Burggarten.

Wander through the idyllic parks and explore the garden's main highlight: the beautiful Orangery, before saying goodbye to your guide.

    Know before you go

    What a varied, exciting and amusing old town tour that Leo Engelmayer offered us in Graz! We were very enthusiastic about his great knowledge and valuable tips, which we were able to use very well not only for our onward journey through Styria, but also for the detour to Maribor. We can recommend our competent and nice guide to everyone with conviction! Thank you again and we hope to see you again!
