Schoerfling was orderd by Gustav
Mahler to build a music pavilion at the meadow in front
of the inn "Zum Hoellengebirge"(today Hotel
Gasthof zum Hoellengebirge - Family Foettinger) close
to the lake Attersee .
The room with three windows
and a door, is furnished only with a table, a chair, a
stove and a piano. There Mahler could find for three summers
the silence and seclusion he needed for composing parts
of the second and the whole third symphony.
