Emerald Path

Learn more about the scenic beauty, mineralogy and geology of the Habachtal on the new theme trail, the Emerald Trail.

The Emerald Trail branches off the road after the information centre at the Habachtal car park and leads along the Habach. At the "Green Ground" there are interesting references to the most important minerals of the Habachtal and the legendary Venedigermandln. After the Habach Bridge, the Emerald Trail meanders impressively through a spring area with an unusually large number of bubbling springs. Over a footbridge on a large stone block in the middle of the wild Habach, you can experience the wildness of the stream. Then the Emerald Trail leads through gentle, lightly wooded alpine meadows. A legendary figure tells the legend of the Fazenwand.

A highlight of the Emerald Trail is the mudflow near the Gasthaus Alpenrose. Here you can rent equipment for searching and washing emeralds and with patience everyone has a chance to find an emerald here.
