Take the time to see this amazing structure that was built in the middle 1600. Hope you can avoid the large crowds. See this marvel when they are gone.

These stairs are straight out of a fairy tale movie. They are tucked away in the courtyard of the Grazer Burg. Built for Emperor Maximilian I around 1500, they are a blast to walk up, but alas they don't go anywhere at the top so...More

We were told by our friend who lives in Graz that we should stop at Doppelwendeltreppe and we are glad we did ! We had a good map and it was not hard to find! The double staircase is intriguing!

Hidden away, but a definite must see in Graz. Great to walk up and down. Seek it out for some exercise!
