Mariahilferplatz lies on the west side of the Mur River close to the Murinsel in central Graz. Dominating the western side of the square is Mariahilferkirche, a church whose twin towers are a major landmark within the city.

As with many squares within Graz, Mariahilferplatz is lined with restaurants and cafes. Within the square is a single tree and a fountain. It is a short walk from here to the Kunsthaus Graz.

When originally built in 1611, Mariahilferkirche did not have two towers. Instead the church, designed by Pietro de Pomis, had a simple triangular pediment classically used to front temples and also a dome. The two towers were added by Josef Hueber in 742-1744 and in 1769 the great dome over the chancel was removed.
