The elevator and funicular up Schlossberg hill
Public transport up the city’s landmark mountain
Visiting Schlossberg hill is an absolute must for every visitor of the Capital of Delight. The way up the city’s landmark mountain is a highlight in itself – whether it’s on foot, with the Schlossbergbahn funicular or with Schlossberg lift.
The entrance to Schlossberg lift is located at Schlossbergplatz square, where you can also find the
fairy-tale train and the extraordinary event location Dom im Berg.
A ride with Schlossberg lift is € 1.80 for adults. Discounted tickets for € 1.30 are available for children aged 6 to 14 as well as for people with disabilities. Please note that tickets for Grazer Linien public transport are not valid for Schlossberg lift.
Our tip: If you’re up for a more action-fuelled alternative, we recommend taking the world’s longest indoor slide back down to the city centre. The 170-metre slide is open to all visitors with a minimum height of 1.30 metres.
