St. Sebastian bei Mariazell
definitely doesn't match up to its close rivals Vienna and Slazburg, but it does offer a great day trip. The river winds through the city and its plesant to take a stroll alond it while taking in some of the modern and ancient architecture. The old clock tower is also worth a visit with some great views of the city available by it.
I liked the city. I think it's underrated because other Austrian cities like Vienna or Salzburg are more famous, but
has many things to give. I'm sure travelers will be surprised with that city. It's small but elegant, clean, and tidy, but with a very personal atmosphere. You must visit Schlossberg, Glockenspielplatz, Hauptsplatz, Sporgasse and much more. The bad thing is that nightlife is quite boring, at least if you go in summer (as it's a university city, in summer there are no students there, so it's very hard to find something to do at night!). I think I would have enjoyed more my stay in Graz if it hadn't poured with rain for two whole days (and I stayed three)! The day I was leaving, it stopped raining!
