Schlossberg, Graz

Planning to visit Schlossberg? Check out our information below!


Schlossberg is one of the most famous sights in Graz’s Altstadt. The 123-metre-high Schlossberg is a spur of the Dolomite Mountains and is located north of the city’s compact centre. Its location on the banks of the River Mur ensured that the former castle on Schlossberg had a protective function in the past. The castle protected residents from enemy attacks by Turkish armies. Unfortunately, Napoleon’s troops managed to capture Schlosseberg. Fortunately, instead of fighting, they negotiated and were successful!

Today, the hill is best known for its iconic clock tower (Uhrturm) and is one of the most important sights in Graz with the best views of the city.

There are several ways to reach the top: by glass lift, a steep cable car or via several paths with stairs (660 steps in total). Once at the top, the hike is well worth it! Indeed, at the top sits a cafรฉ with a huge terrace from where you have great views over the city Graz. Weather permitting, you can sit there with a nice beer or local drink and enjoy the extraordinary view.

Schlossberg itself can be visited every day of the year, all day and night.
