But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable vacation.

Add in the alpine backdrop and you’ve got a city that makes for an unforgettable vacation. The imposing Salzburg Cathedral and Hohensalzburg Fortress dominate the skyline, while in the center you’ll find plenty of grand cafes and fine restaurants.

History buffs will want to venture farther afield to visit Hitler’s Eagle’s Nest perched high in the German Alps in Berchtesgaden.

Graz is a town with a long and interesting past. It has buildings and historic sites dating back over 800 years.

Much of the accommodations we offer in Graz are within easy walking distance of the train station, or a very short cab ride. There is a taxi stand at the station. By walking or taking a cab rather than having us arrange a transfer service (which is, in our opinion is overpriced in Graz) you will save at least $50.

City of Design

Suggestion to explore on your own

Graz is a city where historical and modern styles live side by side, allowing time travel from block to block. It's no coincidence that UNESCO considers Graz a "City of Design." From bohemian street furniture to the careful blending of historical residences with modern trends you'll feel that the statement "good architecture creates intimacy and changes reality" comes alive in Graz. One of the most stunning and fun examples of the city's contemporary structures is the "Murinsel", an iron and glass construction floating on the surface of the river.

1 Night in Vienna

Vienna is a timeless city of high culture, grand cafes, breathtaking architecture and more, all set on the banks of the majestic Danube River. The moment you set foot in the city you’ll see why Vienna’s center is on the UNESCO World Heritage list. Often regarded as the world capital of music, Vienna is the place where Beethoven and Mozart made history. Even today a visit to the opera or a classical music performance at one of the city’s sublime concert halls is an unforgettable experience. Stephansplatz, Vienna's main square, is dominated by the impressive eponymous gothic St. Stephen's Cathedral. Inside you’ll find a rich collection of artistic treasures, and the view from the tower is well worth the climb, offering amazing views over the city. But the cathedral is only one of the most visible attractions in Vienna. You won’t want to miss the magnificent Schonbrunn Palace and the imperial Hofburg Palace. Explore the city on foot, in a car, or by bike: the choice is yours. If you’d like to go farther afield you can even take a river cruise to nearby Bratislava, the capital of Slovakia, or a bike trip to local wineries. But you don’t have to leave Vienna to have a wonderful time. Simply strolling through the pedestrian zones in the city center and stopping for a coffee and a slice of cake make for a truly enjoyable vacation.
