In Graz, the Stations of the Cross demand but a short pilgrimage to the Kalvarienberg or calvary hill from the city centre. Graz has two substantial rocky hills: the well-known Schlossberg and, further out,  the Austein. In a way analogous to Golgotha in Jerusalem, the Via Dolorosa  has been reconstructed on this imposing rocky outcrop overlooking the river Mur and the city to the south. Certainly worth a visit and, even if the ascent might still be a little arduous today, a place to reflect.
