- Schlossbergplatz: From the Schlossbergplatz, on the one hand, you can head towards the Mur and get directly to the Murinsel. The Mur island is a floating island from the time when Graz was the cultural capital (2003). In addition, one of the most famous shopping centers between Schlossbergplatz and Hauptplatz (Kastern & Öhler). If you follow the streetcar the next stop “Schlossbergbahn” will be reached in three minutes. An unforgettable driveway with excellent views over Graz on the castle hill. But the Schlossbergplatz also offers a lot: in addition to the Graz Museum, it is possible to go directly through the Graz mountain. Here it is pleasantly cool in summer. The route ends a bit higher and not far from Graz Carmelite Square. In addition, there is also the possibility of driving the Schlossberglift directly to the Grazer clock tower. The lift trip costs extra and is not included in the ticket of the Verbundlinen. Furthermore, there is the possibility of the ride on the multimedia cave railway through the dark corridors of the mountain. Many people think this train is still known as the “Märchengrottenbahn”.
