Uhrturm - Review

This 28 metre 13th century clock tower is very dear to the people of Graz. When Napoleon finally took possession of Graz back in the 19th century, he destroyed most of the fort on the Schlossberg, but a heartfelt appeal and a hefty donation from the citizens saved the Clock Tower. Each of the tower’s four faces has its own dial. The tower also has three bells: the hour bell rings every hour; the fire bell is fire warning system from 1645; and the hangdog bell used to ring out executions.

You can of course, climb the tower for a view – red roofs, steel and glass towers, spires and the domes of churches in Graz will keep you very preoccupied.

At the foot of the clock tower and down some stairs, you’ll see the statue of a dog. The legend goes that a dog’s barking saved the emperor's daughter Kunigunde from being kidnapped by the Hungarian King Matthias Corvinus.

  • Ok.

  • Eines der wichtigsten Wahrzeichen der Stadt Graz. Auf jeden Fall einen Blick wert. Die Aussicht ist wunderbar und es lohnt sich hier ein bisschen rumzuspazieren. Für Leute die nicht gerne Treppen laufen gibt es eine Standseilbahn und einen Lift im inneren des Schlossberges um nach oben zu kommen.

  • Graz egyik szimbóluma, jól mutat a kis hegy tetején. Kedves épület.

  • Da non perdere la salita in funicolare

  • Schöne Aussicht von oben. Der Schlossberg ist ein Muss für alle GrazbesucherInnen (Genauso wie für die GrazerInnen) Der Uhrturm selbst ist nur ein winziger Teil des „Ausfluges“.
