[Austria] Graz, the capital of Styria

Recommended Posts

I was in Graz today, to visit my friend there and ride with the christmas-streetcar and the St. Nicholas streetcar. Here are some pictures of the Graz network (which consists only of streetcars and busses).

Let's start with the St. Nicholas special service:

Good evening from Europe!

Today is a very special day for Graz, its streetcar system celebrates its 140th birthday. For this reason, I want to show you three recent pics from this lovely city.

Here you can see two of the last ten remaining fully-high-floor streetcars in Graz in the Andritz loop. The left one runs on the 5 to Puntigam, which is a line from north to south through downtown. The right one is a driving school that makes a little break.

The 600 series were refitted with a low floor module around the turn of the millennium. This photo was taken in Herrengasse ("Lord's street"), a bustling pedestrian area in the heart of the old downtown. All trolley lines run through this street.

And last, but not least, a shot from Graz's backyard mountain, with a 650 series Bombardier Cityrunner on Archduke John Bridge, over the Mur river.

If you are interested in the development of the streetcar network in the last 140 years, check out my website. An interactive map will await you and you can observe the routes of the lines over the years, starting with the horse streetcar and going up until now.
