Hauptplatz is a strange mixture. It has very colorful architecture around, too big grey Townhouse, fountain and many kiosks. They spoil the view. Putting all street furniture, shelters on the tram stations and small vendors around is too much. Place need to be cleaned, open...More

Clearly the center of the city all the pedestrian traffic, bicycles and trams passing through here at all hours were fascinating. The shops were awesome and the local flavor of Graz condensed into a square city block.

The reknown old square of the city, in front of the town’s hall is a meeting point after enjoying walks along the Graz streets. There are cafe’s to cater to thirst and hunger while viewing the slow buzzling streets ahead.

The Hauptplatz of Graz is really nice. It was located a 15 min. walk from my hotel. Hopped on the tram to Hauptbahnhof there. Also took a picture.

Great place to turn 360 degrees and get a feel for the place - old town Graz. It doesn’t matter which direction you walk in, you’ll find amazing baroque architecture, shops, Gelato places, hot dog stand, tram stop, etc.

You have not been to Graz if you do have not been to the Hauptplatz and soaked in the past and present of Graz`s market square.

We ate here, had a drink, people watched and shopped. Just like any typical Euro square. Obviously would go here again...you have to....its a square in Graz...everyone see it.
