Getting to the top of our Schloßberg

Apart from it offering a great view on the city, the Schlossberg in Graz is also site of our conference dinner. Here is some information on how to get there:

There are a few ways for getting up the small hill in the middle of Graz: A funicular, an elevator or by foot! While i prefer the route by foot, I understand not everybody wants to arrive at the Restaurant SCHLOSSBERG soaked in sweat and with a heart rate of 180.

Schlossberg Funicular & Schlossberg Elevator

Schlossberg Funicular

The Schlossberg funicular is a small glass cabin that will carry you right to the Restaurant SCHLOSSBERG:
The price is included in your tram ticket, if you don't have one, it'll cost you 2,70 €.

Schlossberg Elevator

The Schlossberg Elevator won't take you directly to the Restaurant SCHLOSSBERG, but more than halfway up! It'll take you to the Clock Tower, Graz' charismatic landmark. From there its only a short, gentle ascend by foot to the Restaurant. - And you'll get to walk by the castle! Definitely worth a try! The Elevator will cost you 2,00 €

By foot

At the same place as where you can find the Schlossberg Elevator, the stairs start. You won't be able to miss them. This path I recommend. Especially during the evening hours with a low sun you'll have great views on the western part of the town with the surrounding hills and the river Mur. Its quite a long way up so take your time! (30 minutes should be plenty)

The Slide Graz

For the way down, Graz offers a special treat: The world´s tallest underground slide!
