Römerstrasse am Korntauern

ROMAN ROAD AT THE KORNTAUERN / SUMPFBODEN
(swampy ground)

The double road bend on the northern slope of the Korntauerns is a visible testimony of the high road contruction architecture of the Romans. The road overcomes a height difference of
about 1300 meters, however, it shows a general grade of
only 10 per cent.

At a sea-level of 2450 m the Tauernpasses were the highest points of the Roman empire at the Korntauern and Mallnitzertauern that could be reached by waggons.


Römerspitz am Korntauern

"RÖMERSPITZ" OF THE KORNTAUERN

View from the mountain pass to the promiment 'Römerspitz' east of the Korntauern. The name as such is not conclusive, since it was probably coined only in the 16th century.

It is nevertheless important and, to be more precise, a testimonial for the national tradition which, passed on the knowledge of the presence of the Romans in the Tauern.


Römerstrasse Mallnitzer Tauern

ROMAN ROAD MALLNITZER TAUERN

The route configuration at the Mallnitzer Tauern has a boldness of the profile of alignment that cannot be surpassed. At one place it crossed a steep rock face by means of an extremely high embankment wall facing the valley.
The breadth of the road of an average 3.8 m was chiselled out in the following flatter part of the rock area from the area facing the mountain.

After crossing a 'flowing' big scree the desired breadth was achieved again by embankments facing the valley, which rested on long socle niches, which were also chiselled into the rock.


Mallnitzer Bergbau

MALLNITZ MINING

Early sources about the Mallnitz mining are not available.
The written tradition starts in 1500, as a certain Hieronymus Magerl wanted to set up a big gold washing plant "in the Möllnitz" (Mallnitz = Möllnitz = small Möll) and acted through
the proper official channels for its approval and then was sent from one authority to the next.
Authority obstacles at 1500 ………..

If Magerl had ever obtained an official permission and operated gold washing, remains an open question.
Quite a number of pit rights were assigned in 1531.
The proof that there had actually been an important mining industry is the existence of galleries.


Bios Nationalpark Zentrum Mallnitz

BIOS NATIONAL PARK CENTER MALLNITZ

BIOS is a unique institution about life in the alpine area
which comprehends the process of life as self-organising circumstances.

The life is explored from the view of the elements, earth, water, air, sun, in the different public areas. This is done in "research islands", whose creation orientates itself at original conditions such as a mountain stream or at a talus.

The visitor becomes a researcher, he will be animated to discover and explore by himself.
BIOS is a centre of astonishment, research and discovery.
