Holidays in Rauris bring those interested on the trail of the history of the Salzburg region. Around 4,000 years ago, the people of Rauris came across gold. Today you still have the opportunity to visit the last traces of the golden age in Rauris on a leisurely hike and thus experience the history up close. Explore the former gold mining area and see the remains of the former miners’ houses and gold mining facilities from the 15th century.
The trade houses in the center of Rauris are particularly worth seeing. You can find out more about the history of the former gold mining in Rauris, which once helped the state of Salzburg to fame and fortune, in the valley museum and in the Zimmerhütte national park museum in Kolm-Saigurn.
