A Catholic church with beautiful interior. The landscape from the church is also nice. Bear in mind that the church is located on a very steep hill. If you arrive by public transport, you should take a number of steps to get reach the church.

One of the major Catholic churches in Graz. Situated near the terminal station of tramway line 1, just up the hill. Widely seen because of its exposed site. Definitely worth a visit.

Such a beautiful church with a such a beautiful view! Absolutely serene!
Great place for a Sunday walk. From the tramway you can walk up the hill after after the visit to the Basilica, you can continue to the forest and back to the city centre of Graz. Don’t miss the eagles statues on the side of the basilica

It is located in a quiet corner. I have been there twice, quite lovely place. You can take bus to reach there.
