Graz is a very safe city, like all cities in Austria. As a woman you can never be 100% sure that there won't be any sexual harassment in the streets/in Clubs/bars, but all in all I'm feeling safe here and have never been attacked or mugged or anything like that :)

I think Graz is a beautiful town with full of history to see. I would suggest if you travel alone to stay in the more visited areas at night time and to take precautions when going home late for example going by Uber is more safe than a regular taxi in my opinion.

Graz is a very safe city. You don't have to be afraid to walk home in the dark. The public transportations are also safe. Moreover, all parts of the city are safe. Where I wouldn't want to be alone in the dark, however, is the district of Grieß, the city park and the train station. However, not for the reason that it is unsafe, but there are often stranger people.
