The Buckelberg gave the surrounding landscape its name, which until 1951 belonged to the municipality of Nestelbach near Graz . In the course of the establishment of the community Laßnitzhöhe, the Buckelberg was transferred to them. It extends from the intersection of Laßnitzhöher Hauptstrasse and Greimelweg over the Annenheim and the Sturmannvillen to the Sonnenhang; the western boundary is the Laßnitzhöher Hauptstrasse , the eastern one the Schustergraben and the Buchwald.
The Buckelberg landscape used to be a typical rural wasteland; it developed into a suburban landscape as a result of the Wilhelminian style villa construction and residential construction, which began intensively from the mid-1980s. The listed Villa Lug ins Land is located on the Schemerl ridge south of the Buckelberg . In 1998 the Schwarzlklinik, a day clinic with a focus on plastic surgery, was established.
Founding legend of Nestelbach near Graz
Some sagas and legends are told about the establishment of Nestelbach near Graz . One is about a severe storm and flooding of the settlement in the "Buckelbauerngraben". This settlement at the foot of the Buckelberg on the source arm of the Nestelbach was therefore completely destroyed. The residents then looked for a safe place for a new settlement and found a picture of the Virgin Mary in a nettle thicket . They built a wooden chapel around which the settlement of Nezilinpach was built, the precursor settlement of today's Nestelbach.
