Is Graz safe at night?

I'm looking to take an afternoon ICBus with my spouse from Venice to Graz. OEBB timetables say the coach will reach Graz at 2145hrs.

From Graz Europaplatz we have a 1.1km / 15 mins walk to the hotel along Keplerstraße.

Safe walk? Travelling in mid April next year.

Austria in general is safe. Of course, bad people can not be exculded as well in Graz. I would say safe walk.

This part f the world is as safe as you can find anywhere in the world (and that goes for all of Central Europe) - it isn't like walking through downtown LA or something like that :)

But of course there is no legislating for one-off anomalies, so exercise the usual precautions (i.e. try not to get blind drunk on the way, abuse police, desecrate national monuments and the like) but don't lose any sleep over it.

Thanks guys.

I'll probably book Hotel Daniel. Just 100m from Graz Europaplatz, 15 minutes to Graz city centre.

Austria is in general very safe, nonetheless someone should always apply common sense. It is no problem at all to walk at night, a fact, that is especially enjoyed by women. In smaller cities like Graz it is even safer because there aren't any "big-city problems".

At 2145 there will still be people out along Kepplerstraße. I have made many late-night walks and bike rides from the Hbf through town as a student on study abroad for 5 months there, and never felt unsafe.

I am living in the center of Graz. Yes, it is safe BUT not n the area of the Stadtpark. This could be unsafe as well during sunshine.
