Climb to the top of Uhrturm, the medieval clock tower offering a panoramic view of the city. Originally built as a medieval defense tower, the city paid Napoleon a ransom in 1809 to keep it from being destroyed when the other fortifications on the hill overlooking the city were conquered. The clock is unique in that the large hand shows the hour and the small one minutes. The small hand was added much later since the large one could be seen from the town at the bottom of the hill. Those with mobility challenges should take the tram or elevator to the top of the tower. A visit to Uhrturm represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Graz online travel route planner to plot your vacation.

  • One must say we were lucky with the weather ;-) Walk up the stairs comfortably, for frail people there is an elevator. Connect to buy a glass of wine in one of the restaurants and enjoy the view. Especially in aiola - upstairs there is a super yellow nutmeg :-) You can then slide down with the slide :-)

  • This tower has a more than 300 years old clock machine which is still functioning with weights lifted up and down. It rings sime bells at 7, 12 and 19 as these times were the most important to signalize to citizens. As the time to close the city gates was 19 o clock.
  • You have to climb to deserve a wonderful point of view. Choose we'll your shoes 😁👌
