Arriving by plane

The closest airport is Graz Thalerhof. From the airport you can take the train line S5 to the main railway station (Hauptbahnhof) or a bus to Jakominiplatz (the central hub for public transport in Graz).

You can also take a train or (Flix-)bus from Vienna International Airport to Graz.

Public transport in Graz

Graz has an efficient public transport system based on buses and trams. Perhaps the easiest way to purchase a ticket is to use one of the vending machines within the trams or at some of the bigger stations (in particular, at the main railway station and Jakominiplatz). You can also purchase tickets at a Trafik (kiosk). Hour and 24-Hour tickets can also be purchased from a bus driver (but not Week tickets!).

We recommend that you buy a Week-Ticket (Wochenkarte). It costs €15.20 and covers all of Graz (zone 101), including the airport, for 7 days. If your stay in Graz is rather short or you will only use public transportation for two rides (getting from the airport to Graz and back), then you may consider the One-Hour-Ticket (Stundenkarte -- valid for 60 minutes; this is sufficient to reach any destination in Graz when starting from the airport) or the 24-Hour-Ticket (24-Stunden-Karte -- valid for 24 hours). The One-Hour-Ticket costs €2.50 and the 24-Hour-Ticket €5.50. You may do the math.

You can check the connections with Verbundlinie. They also offer an app: BusBahnBim for iOS and BusBahnBim for Android. You can also download full schedules for all lines.
