Green Gold at Tauernblick

Emeralds in the Habach Valley – the Only Emerald Deposits in Europe

The Hohe Tauern National Park region and especially Bramberg are known for their special treasures: the emeralds. The Habach Valley, ca. 3 km away from the Hotel, is considered the only known site where emeralds have been found throughout Europe. You will even find emeralds from Bramberg in Salzburger Land in the English crown jewels. You can admire the precious crystal treasures at the Mineral Museum, the Museum of Natural History in Salzburg or directly at Smaragd-Hotel Tauernblick. In addition to emeralds you will also see other admirable gems. Join us 1 per week on an Emerald Search! Our Smaragd Taxi takes you comfortably to the site and with a little luck you might find your personal energy stone.
