Burg Review

The scanty remains of this former imperial palace now house government offices. Most of this uninspired structure is from the 19th and 20th centuries, but two noteworthy vestiges of the original 15th-century stronghold remain: the Burgtor (palace gate), which opens into the sprawling Stadtpark (municipal park), and the unusual 49-step, 26-foot carved stone double-spiral Gothic staircase from 1494-1500, in the hexagonal tower at the far end of the first courtyard. While meandering around take note of the Spor, a statue of a seed which represents the center of Graz.
