According to legend, it was the devil himself who created Schlossberg. He had promises the people of Graz to make their local mountain, the "Schöckl", higher. Of course, in exchange for the first soul climbing up heightened Schöckl. When flying over Graz with a huge rock from Africa in his hands, he caught sight of a procession. It was on Easter sunday. On which he had no power on humans. And therefore he could not win a soul. In (un-) righteous anger Satan threw the rock onto the town. The rock broke in two parts. Today the samller one is "Austein" with its Calvary. The bigger one is "Schlossberg".
