Thörl is the name of a very narrow valley in Upper Styria through which the Stübmingbach flows. In the Middle Ages, the valley was fortified with a wall, a gate (a small one; Thörl is a diminutive of Tor, gate) and a tower. Access could easily be denied. This was important, as Thörl lies at the road to the Seeberg pass; and also, because the valley was a home of ironworks. At least since 1372, Thörl has produced steel and steel products. Thörl was one of the centres of the "Eherne Mark", the "Border march of Iron", as Styria was often called.
