Klagenfurt to Graz

We didn’t want to go all the way to Vienna today so we went about half way. We took the bus from Klagenfurt to Graz. Before we left Klagenfurt we went to the bakery for coffee and pastries just like yesterday. 

At our hotel in Graz we looked at a brochure of things to do around Graz. In the town  of Thal about 4 km from Graz we could visit the Arnold Schwarzenegger Museum!  His original home houses the museum. We decided to skip that this trip. 

We are not staying in the center of Graz so after checking in and resting a bit we took a tram into the center. 

The mountain in the picture above was used to shelter 40,000 people from air raids during World War II. Before the war 6.3 kilometers of tunnels were built into the mountain. Today there is a children’s train ride in the tunnels; – The Fairy Tale Express. There is also an elevator to the top. Duke and I avoided the stairs and took the elevator. 

For dinner we ate in the building next to the building with the dancing clock figures below. The restaurant is called Glöckl Bräu. 

Duke really wanted sauerkraut so he had sausage and sauerkraut. I had wiener schnitzel with potatoe salad. They started out by bringing us pretzels with our beer.
