With a population surpassing 330,000 residents, Graz is a key hub for education, boasting four universities and four colleges, accommodating over 60,000 students.

The city breathes history with its ancient 'Innere Stadt', the oldest borough, and numerous noteworthy individuals like Johannes Kepler and Nikola Tesla having walked its streets.

When to visit Graz

When planning a trip to this Austrian gem, timing is important. The best period for family outings to Graz is during spring (March - May). The climate is comfortably cool, allowing families to explore attractions such as the Uhrturm, Grazer Schlossberg, Schloss Eggenberg, and Kunsthaus Graz with ease.

However, if you’re looking for lower tariffs, visiting during the summer months might be an option. Keep in mind that rainfall tends to be higher during this period. Winter in Graz, from November to February, might appeal to those who enjoy frosty views, with temperatures averaging between 0 to -2 degrees Celsius. No matter the season, Graz promises an enriching visit with its myriad of offerings.
