There’s an energy about Graz, which draws you in and lifts your spirit. Maybe it’s the scent of pomegranate and thyme. Maybe it’s the Austrian pastries or the polyphonic soundtrack of church bells and street music. Whatever it is, the rich heritage of this vibrant city, with its 40,000-plus students in six universities and wild juxtaposition of ultra-modern and sumptuous Baroque, is yours for the taking. Immerse yourself in a cityscape of red turrets and shiny cobbles. Dance in pale moonlight. The elephant parachuting from the sky is every bit as welcome as you are.
