From 1772 to 1780 Ferdinand Hetzendorf added some of the final touches to the palace park under the instructions of Joseph II. The crowning glory, the Gloriette was added in 1775. The view from the Gloriette, looking back towards the palace with Vienna shimmering in the distance, ranks among the best in Vienna. It’s possible to venture onto its roof, but the view is only marginally superior.
Rising to 473m, Schlossberg is the site of the original fortress that gave Graz its name. Its wooded slopes can be reached by a number of paths.
