with the Schlossbergbahn Funicular
The Schlossbergbahn funicular takes you up the castle hill of Graz in comfort and in just a few minutes. With a 60% gradient and glass roof, the funicular offers fantastic views of the historic centre of Graz.
It runs up Schlossberg hill every ¼ hour; more frequently if necessary.
You can get to the base station via tram services 4 and 5 ("Schlossbergbahn" stop) or park your car in the short-term parking zone along the River Mur. Here parking is subject to charge in the "Blaue Zone" (blue zone). You can obtain pay-and-display tickets from the vending machines.
A one-way trip on the Schlossberg costs € 2.50 for adults. Special fares and reductions exist. All Graz Linien public transport tickets for zone 1 are also valid on the Schlossbergbahn. Schlossbergbahn fare summary
