LINE UP AND OFF YOU GO ON A JOURNEY OF DISCOVERY THROUGH GRAZ!

BOOKABLE: ON REQUEST

You have surely heard a lot about our beautiful city Graz. Who lived here and who is buried here? What can the old houses and alleys tell us? We will walk through the city together and visit the places you might have heard about at school. We will solve riddles and tell you secrets (that your teachers probably don’t know) and chat a bit about what else you want to discover.

The tour is especially suitable for 3rd and 4th grade elementary school. You can choose between a tour of the old town or a tour of the castle hill, including a visit to the clock tower and the bell tower. We will be happy to discuss with the teacher in advance which topics should be covered and which places should not be missed. We will also be happy to advise you on any additional programs or visits (Zeughaus, Eggenberg Palace, Graz Museum, etc.) in addition to the tour and “add our two cents” if desired.

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. There is no minimum for the number of participants but we do have an upper limit that will, however, vary according to the type of tour you book.
