Why should you rent an apartment in Graz?
World heritage city, capital of indulgence, green heart of Styria: Graz is many things. The city’s Old Town was chosen as one of the best-preserved city centres in Central Europe by the UNESCO. It is known for Hauptplatz main square with its pretty town hall and Herrengasse, the city’s most popular shopping street. Schloßberg mountain with the city’s landmark clock tower is also located right in the city centre. A unique combination of historical buildings and futuristic architecture lends Graz its special charm. With more than 70 per cent of green spaces, the provincial capital of Styria deserves its nickname of “green city”.
Temporary housing in the 17 districts of Graz
The heart of Styria is divided into 17 districts, the most central ones being Innere Stadt, St. Leonhard, Geidorf, Lend, Gries and Jakomini. Unlike Vienna, the districts of Graz are rather known by their name than by their Roman numeral. The six central districts are flanked by Liebenau, Waltendorf, Ries, Mariatrost, Gösting, Eggenberg, Wetzelsdorf, Straßgang and Puntigam.
An interesting fact: The river Mur divides the city into two parts – find the better part for your temporary housing needs together with KURZZEiTmiete!

You’re looking for a short-term apartment in Graz and don’t know where to start looking? We give you an overview of the most popular districts of Austria’s second biggest city. Have a look, pick your favourite and move right in – that’s how easy work-related changes of residence are with KURZZEiTmiete!
St. Leonhard boasts a wonderful combination of classicism and modernity. The district features the city’s highest building, the Church of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Due to its central location and historic buildings, rents are quite high in St. Leonhard. However, with KURZZEiTmiete it’s easy to find an affordable short-term rental there. Several universities and other educational institutions as well as the district’s excellent public transport connection via Elisabethstraße add to St. Leonhard’s popularity. Generally speaking, the neighbourhood is an attractive choice for residents of all ages.
Boasting Karl-Franzens-University and the Medical University as well as plenty of museums and galleries, the district of Geidorf is particularly popular with students and those interested in culture. In the east, the district borders on Mariatrost, offering short distances to the popular Hilmteich pond as well as to Graz Hospital and the nearby Rosenberg recreation area. Thanks to its excellent public transport connections and varied cultural offers, Geidorf is a popular choice with guests looking for temporary housing options.
Creative, colourful, multicultural – that’s the Lend district! Once a rather ill-reputed district of Graz, the former working-class area today is one of the trendiest parts of the city. What does this district have to offer? A central location, excellent infrastructure, the city’s second biggest farmer’s market, the Orpheum for culture lovers and Augarten Park! Thanks to future-oriented urban development, Lend has also become a popular choice for those looking for short-term accommodation in Graz.
You would like to live and work right in the heart of Styria? Just like in other Austrian cities, the city centre is a great choice to do so. The “Innere Stadt” district of Graz is a popular housing choice, not just for those looking for short-term rentals. The district offers high residential standards and great local amenities. Supermarkets, pubs and restaurants can all be reached on foot. The same is true for Stadtpark, which offers a green contrast to the historic city centre.
Just like Liebenau, St. Peter is one of Graz’s most popular residential areas. Students, families, singles or retirees: This district is popular with those looking for accommodation on the outskirts of the city with a great infrastructure. The public transport network is getting continuously expanded to keep up with the growing traffic demands. St. Peter is known for its high standard of housing, a lively local business scene and increasing urbanisation.
The conservative outer district of Ries to the east of the city centre offers lots of fresh air and green spaces. In the west, the district borders on Mariatrost and Geidorf, while in the south it is flanked by St. Leonhard and Waltendorf. The district is considered to be the city’s safest. Plenty of natural areas such as Waldinsel Stifting-Ries and many quiet side streets make for a high quality of housing. All of this makes Ries an attractive choice for work-related changes of residence.
Mariatrost is known as the “green north” of Graz. The city’s biggest district is the perfect choice for all those who enjoy doing outdoor activities after work. Plenty of sports areas and green spaces offer varied options to do sports. What’s more, new companies and doctors are regularly taking up residence in this district. Good to know: The neighbouring district of Andritz also offers a nice atmosphere as well as plenty of leisure and outdoor activities.
Rural charm in Austria’s second biggest city – if that’s what you’re looking for, then you have found it in Straßgang. Many detached houses, green spaces and agricultural structures make the district a popular suburban housing choice. Despite the district’s quiet location and proximity to the local recreation area of Puchkogel and the Straßgangerbad public swimming pool, Straßgang offers a great infrastructure. Straßgang is home to the southern entrance of the Plabutsch Tunnel and the Webling roundabout and features an attractive combination of urbanity and rurality.
