Parschlug was a municipality in Austria which merged in January 2015 into Kapfenberg in the Bruck-Mürzzuschlag District of Styria, Austria.

Geography[edit]

Parschlug lies north of central Kapfenberg at the foot of the Zöbererhöhe.

Its boroughs were Parschlug, Pogier, Pönegg, and Göritz.

History[edit]

The earliest surviving record of Parschlug appears in connection with a document gifting lands to Viktring Abbey, dating from 1203.

Around 1800 commercial exploitation of the local brown coal deposits began, and the modern municipality was founded in 1854.
