The Schloßbergbahn has been transporting passengers since 1894. In the process, the funicular railway overcomes a gradient of 60%!

General info:

The carriages of the Castle Mountain railway run regularly every 15 minutes (on each full quarter hour); if necessary also at shorter intervals. Thanks to the carriages equipped with a glass roof, you can enjoy a wonderful panoramic view over the city of Graz during the journey.


All valid tickets for zone 101 of Graz Linien (from the hourly ticket to the KlimaTicket, also KlimaTicket Austria) can be used for the Schloßbergbahn.

It is necessary to purchase a ticket if the ticket (e.g. hourly ticket) has expired.
