Graz and the app ‘Graz Secrets’

View of central place in Graz, Austria

At the end of May several bloggers and me were invited by Hotel Weitzer to discover my native city Graz using the app ‘Graz Secrets’ created by les Avignons.

The app offered four different tours named “Discover Lend & Gries“, „Graz-Extended Version“, „Shopping Tour“ and “Street Art Tour“. On my trip I took the “Street Art Tour” and was surprised what I learned about street art in Graz that way.

In general I got the impression the app is providing useful hints for people who are interested in learning about weird places, shops with special products and hidden lanes with amazing street art.

The app lays emphasis on not that known districts of Graz like Lend and Gries which actually offer a lot of fun shops and pubs. From my standpoint as museum buff I especially loved the tip about the Hanns Schell Collection which is an excellent museum about keys, locks, cases and cast iron.

To sum up the app is really a good tool for discovering Graz off the beaten path. For learning about the general sights of Graz, I’d recommend to take an ordinary tour guide though.
