Graz is located about 200 km south of Vienna and is the second largest city in Austria. It is known for its charming old town, good food and an extensive cultural scene.
The heart of Graz's old town is formed by pedestrian zones, in which there are many cafés, shops and boutiques. The historic centre with its small streets and red roofs has even been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Above the old town on the Schlossberg is the most famous landmark of Graz, the Uhrturm (clock tower).
Graz was named European Capital of Culture in 2003 and took the opportunity to expand its wide range of museums and cultural offerings.
On a day trip to Southern Styria, also known as Austrian Tuscany, it is a must to visit the local vineyards, enjoy regional pumpkin products or stop at one of the traditional "Buschenschank" restaurants.
And last but not least, once a year all hell breaks loose in Graz when Formula 1 arrives at the Red Bull Ring in Spielberg, only 74 km from Graz.
