Although this involves a fairly steep climb up from the tram station, the effort is very worthwhile. The building itself is magnificent, and the interier is just breathtaking. The only small issue is that during the winter months they close the steps so access is...More

The Basilika is quite far from the Graz city center but worth a trip. We could take a tram but it was more comfortable going by car. Nice trip to the outskirts, with great views and impressive church!

Even though we lived in Graz in the past, when we visited this year, we took the time to visit Mariatrost. The views from the hilltop, where it sits on the edge of Graz, are fantastic. You can walk all the way around the church,...More
