Schloßberg is a hill in the centre of Graz, Austria. It is located on the east bank of the river Mur. The hill is 473-meters (1552 feet) tall. The top can be reached by furnicular. At the top of the hill is a castle and a 28-meter (92-ft) clock tower, one of the landmarks of Graz. There's a cafe near the clock tower where visitors can get a scenic view of Graz below.
To reach the top of Schloßberg, one can take the furnicular railway, an elevator built into the mountain, or simply climb the stairs.
