Located in the southern region of Austria, Graz is well connected by major rail providers, and its Central Railway Station has a number of platforms that serve both domestic and international routes. The city is linked to Slovenia in the south and Hungary to the east. The main station for connections to Graz is Vienna, which provides an easy train link to Paris and onwards to London and Amsterdam. This modern train station offers local services that include lines to nearby airports and easy access via a number of lines offering direct routes to the capital of Vienna.
Graz's beautiful old town centre has even been declared a World Heritage Site. The Schloss Eggenberg Palace, which is located just outside the city is a major attraction, with its baroque architecture and museum. There is much more to Graz than just the historic centre thought, it also has a number of more modern attractions, including the stunning steel island in the river Mur. The castle mountain has a large staircase leading to its summit and historic clock tower, offering some of the best views of the city.
