Full description

During World War II Graz was bombed and strongly devastated. Most of the Old Town buildings survived, so they are now authentic traces of turbulent history. Get to know the history of Graz during the war and see connected places. Explore the most popular Old Town sights as well and have an additional visit at the Graz Museum to see WWII themed exhibitions.

During 2-hours you will have a comprehensive tour led by an Expert-Guide. Discover WWII history and how the city was damaged and rebuilt. Be guided by the best highlights of Old Town as well. Stroll through the bustling Sporgasse while admiring surrounding historical buildings, then explore the Graz Castle and climb up the dizzying double spiral stairs. Marvel at the stunning Graz Cathedral and Mausoleum of Emperor Ferdinand II with its remarkable turquoise domes. See the Glockenspiel and if you are lucky, you’ll hear the carillon melody played three times a day. During World War II the bells stopped chiming. They were made into arms and renewed only in 1956. Stroll through the Hauptplatz, the city’s main square and take a moment to look at the Franciscan Church, which was significantly damaged in WWII. At last, discover the foot of Schlossberg hill. It hides an extensive system of tunnels below, created during WWII to protect the civilian population of Graz from aerial bombing.

Extend your tour to 3-hours and enjoy an additional visit at the Graz Museum. Follow your 5-Stars Guide and learn even more interesting facts and stories. Museum’s exhibitions show important events from the past, including the World War II. In five rooms visitors can explore a diverse collection of historical evidence and important events from the history of Graz.
