Jagerhofer, known among other things as the organizer of beach volleyball tournaments, owns the “Herbertstöckl” villa in the city center, and he has rented the adjoining villa with 8000 square meters of land on a long-term basis. The museum was to be created there according to the concept of Jagerhofer, who was a friend of Udo Jürgens. A digital world of experience was planned, which was to be set up in an adjoining building. Jagerhofer spoke of 300,000 visitors per year.
Now the project is “dead”. There were uncertainties on the part of Udo Jürgens’ family. Although his children Johnny and Jenny looked at the plans, the negotiations dragged on endlessly. He therefore decided not to pursue the matter further.
Udo Jürgens, born in Klagenfurt in 1934 and died in Switzerland in 2014, was made an honorary citizen of the city of Klagenfurt in 2001.
