Route & Duration
St. Giles' Cathedral, also known as Graz Cathedral or Grazer Dom and located in the Austrian city of Graz, is the cathedral church that bears Saint Giles' name. The Steiermark diocese, also known as the Diocese of Graz-Seckau, is headquartered there. Designed in Gothic style, the church was constructed between 1438 and 1462 by Frederick III. Emperor Ferdinand II's Mausoleum lies nearby.
Mausoleum Kaiser Ferdinands II
An imperial cemetery next to the Dom. Along with the Dom and Katharinenkirche church, turquoise domes that rise over the Mausoleum characterize one of the city's beautiful panoramas. Given how this ensemble enchants each visitor with more than just a tinge of Florentine flare, you could almost have been transported to the regions to the south. Emperor Ferdinand II commissioned Giovanni Pietro de Pomis, a royal artist, to design the imposing monument in Graz.
The Burggarten in the heart of Graz is a mostly unexplored beauty. Who would have imagined such a charming location tucked away directly behind the Styrian provincial government building? It's a terrific opportunity to experience the serene and elegant ambiance to take a stroll through the park's well-kept trails. The old orangery, which has undergone meticulous restoration efforts, is a feature and now welcomes you to parties and celebrations of all types.
Every day at 11 a.m., 3 p.m., and 6 p.m., a charming maiden and a stout lad do a pirouette on the gable of the building on Glockenspielplatz square. The cheery 24 bells of the mechanism ring three distinct tunes. A show that is sweet and romantic. Lucky onlookers leave when the final note fades away, each with a spring in their step and a grin on their face.
The Graz clock tower is a 28-meter-high clock tower. With its more than five-meter-diameter dials and gold-plated hands, it sits atop the Schloßberg and serves as the emblem of Graz.
