As a patron of the arts, Karl Ernst Osthaus invited her to Copenhagen, she moved into the Westphalian industrial city on the Ruhr and created the first large-scale architectural sculpture commissioned by the city four-than-life women statues on the facade of the theater Hagen, who produced a scandal but simultaneously made her known in Germany. She was involved in the circle of artists around Osthaus and established contacts among others, with the sculptors Moissey Kogan and Will Lammert , the painter Christian Rohlfs and the glass painter Johan Thorn Prikker . Steger lived in a house in the artist colony "On Headband" in Hohenhagen which she adorned with a caryatid.
