Hauptplatz - Review
Back in the 12th century, this used to be Graz’s main marketplace. It’s area was cut in half when the Renaissance Town House was built. Most of the houses around the square have lovely Renaissance and Gothic facades. A lot of cobbled little alleys lead into the square. You may want to check these out; there are a lot of cafes and bars and restaurants here. There’s almost always something happening at the square – it’s a great place to people watch. Sightseeing wise, you’re here for the atmosphere, which is lively, and also:
- The Graz Town Hall
- The White Moorish House
- The Luegg House
- The Archduke Johann Fountain
- This is one of the only two squares in the city where every tram stops.
- Shops in the square usually shut down by 7pm.

Hauptplatz, Graz Reviews
City center. Nice view of clock tower and old architecture.. Good inexpensive food stalls.Creative hot dogs @ O My Dog down the street towards zakominiplatz.
Great light dishes. Incredible tasty french fries. A bit crowded, but the attentive service finds us a table. Lovely waffles and coffee.
Very nice place! A lot of stands, shops, cafes and restaurants. You get almost everything on this place what your heart desires.
City center for Graz where all the shops, cafes and restaurants are. Simply walk around into the side streets and plazas, full of great experiences.
You can see the Graz Rathaus from here! While you're there, check out Red Bull World and reflect on what dark path the people of Graz took that brought them to a point where an entire store of Red Bull merchandise was not only necessary, but it needed to be put in the city's main square.
