Peggau was then a tourist magnate, the Lurgrotte, Austria’s largest and longest stalactite cave, with the distinctive Peggau Kalkfelsen favored by the accessibility through the Südbahn railway an interesting scenery as a place to visit and a summer resort. The owner families of mining and iron processing industry with the first Mur power plant (Thinnfeld, Heipel, Neufeldt) formed together with the catholic priest first salons, which even produced their own compositions. Where else than in the management villa of the former Peggauer Hufnagelfabrik should a new salon be formed in this area?
