This most famous landmark is the symbol of Graz. As a special stop on the Schlossberg, it has the same open hours and route up the hill. It dates from the 16th century, though the first mention of the tower is from the 1200s. The clock has four giant faces that might at first confuse you—until you realize that the big hands tell the hour and the small hands the minutes. At the time the clock was designed, it only had the hour hand, therefore a smaller minute
hand was added later. Nearby notice a statue of a watchdog—he is said to represent a dog who once saved the daughter of an Emperor from being kidnapped by a slighted lover.
