From street art to street food

COLORFUL WALLS AND URBAN LIFE IN GRAZ

BOOKABLE: ON REQUEST

Graz has some colorful walls to offer, where it is worth taking a closer look. The fact is that street art tells current everyday stories. Whether political statements, a “football sticker war” or just cute animals, the city is a giant art gallery and playground of creative minds. It is colorful, urban, wild and also provocative.

A tour in which we will not even take one look at the clock tower, because here we are talking about smaller and larger, in any case, the “other” sights of the city, which are increasingly attracting public interest. Some symbols and colorful images may seem familiar, because they attract attention and also provoke. Others you walk by every day without really noticing them. This tour is the most current tour Graz has to offer and is about the topics of the present and their colorful signs. After all the impressions and surprises, there will certainly be plenty to chat about and discuss, so we will end the tour with a street food snack together in the Augarten.

What is a “Young Tour”?

Our Young Tours are customizable thematic tours. The contents couldn’t be more diverse and our guests are too. In this case ‘young’ does of course less refer to the age of the visitor than to the age of the guide and the young-spirited walks around our city. But what’s best – our Young Tours may be combined, extended, and altered – please feel free to specify the date, time, meeting point etc. We will try to make it all possible, after a short talk with you. We will gladly advise you and make sure we find exactly what you need for your company outing, family meeting, birthday, hen’s or stag’s night, or any other occasion. We are the youngest guides in Graz and rock the city with our fresh, wild walking tours and ideas.

NB: Unlike our Free Tours, our Young Tours are not held free of charge but instead customized to your liking.

How to find the guide?

The guide will wait at the arranged place and time, wearing a discover Graz bag or t-shirt, and will walk up to you. For the arranged meeting point, please refer to our website or to our confirmation e-mail.

What do we mean by “upon request”?

You may book any tour upon your own wishes for a fixed rate. Please give us the date, time, and number of persons you wish to bring and we will arrange the rest together. Discover Graz will be pleased to inform you about what best suits you and your group’s needs and wishes.
