This hike is well worth the bus ride out to Göstung and provides beautiful views over Graz. The trail is very steep going up, but you'll be rewarded by the short time you need to get to the top (about an hour, depending on your...More

quite a hike, and no cold drinks in the bar up there - but it IS an old ruined castle, and they have drinks available. I like walking up there - and I believe you may too

If you like walking/hiking, then the Gosting ruins offer a good view of Graz and the surrounding area. Not as hard as hiking up mountains but not as easy as walking in the park.

Getting up to the Gösting ruins requires approximately a 20 minute hike. It's a bit strenuous but definitely worth it! Once there you get to see the old ruins of the castle which are cool in itself, but you also get a wonderful view overlooking...More

One of the best part of the castle Burgruine Gosting; besides being an ancient castle. Is the fact that the castle has not been commercialized. The castle itself and the ground are very well maintained. There was not an entry fee and you are free...More

There is the line 40 to Gösting. From there you go 30min uphill and you stand in front of the castle. Just watch out for yellow signs with Burgruine Gösting
