Very nice, historic carillon inside this historic building. Can been watched from outside several times a day (I think at 11am and 5 pm). Nice, traditional and romantic.

I love this Glockenspiel. Sit in one of the outdoor cafes and watch and listen to it. It glints, it moves, it chimes. Gorgeous

The show is seen from the courtyard and is free. I have seen many of these, and this one is cute and musically pleasant.

It only takes a few minutes, occurs often and is fun to watch. It is not hard to find and is near the other historic places.

The figures on the Glokenspiel can be viewed three times a day. We went in the evening. The bells ring and out come the two dancing and holding beer steins.

The Glockenspiel was commissioned by a brewer to advertise his beer and Brauhaus. The glockenspiel is scheduled to run several times a day. You cannot set your watch by it though. It is fun to watch the tour guides trying to fill the time gaps...More

If you are in the area then I would go to see it. It's cute. The really nice thing about Glockenspiel Graz is that the building isn't very high so you are close to it compared to the one in Munich.

We were told not to miss the Glockenspiel Graz and were glad we caught this interesting but felt it was a little over rated. Perhaps with young children or Grandma's it would be a " must see".

Not that far from center, a sight worth visiting. I am certain that you can see the dancing marionettes at 11, and the "show" lasts about 10 minutes. Nice place to take a rest from walking, have a cup of coffee, pretzel and wurst in...More
