The Austrian Alps / Salzburgerland region
The National Park village Fusch has always been an important alpine transit town, connecting the villages north and south of the Alps. Not long ago, an ancient knife - dated 2000 BC - was found on the eastern foot of the Brennkogel mountain. This knife is the oldest object ever found, and proves that Fusch used to be a very important alpine transit town over the Hohe Tauern mountains. However, there is no proof that the so-called ’Römerweg’ was actually a Roman transit road, i.e. no milestones were ever found.
However, a 4-metre wide, kilometre-long road was found between Fuschertörl and Hochtor. This road was probably used by medieval traders, rather than Roman legions. Salt was transported from north to south, whereas wine and spices were brought back on the backs of local Haflinger horses. Apart from trading, mining was an important economic factor for the Fusch Valley. The gold and silver mines were built at an altitude of 2.900 - 3.000 metres, however they were abandoned in the years around 1600, due to the changes of climate and the approaching glaciers. This was the time of the ’small ice age’. At that time, 150 people worked as miners. The mines were re-opened in 1763, and were finally closed exactly 100 years later.
The construction of the Grossglockner mountain pass road from 1930 to 1935 - by Franz Wallack - was of greatest importance for the town of Fusch. The Governor of the Province of Salzburg Franz Rehrl was responsible for the construction of this important alpine transit route - the historical continuation of the ancient trading route. This mountain pass road was not only an important transit route, it is also an historical document for the job-creation policy during the world economic crisis.
At that time, it was also a political strategy to demonstrate that the young Austrian Republic was not only productive, but also capable of surviving. Apart from this most important construction of the 20th century, you can also visit other constructions from previous centuries in the Fusch Valley. The ’Saint Wolfgang’ church in Bad Fusch was built around 1400. Over the centuries, the twin-tower church was severely damaged by avalanches and gradually began to decay. Renovation work started in 1986. Today you can visit this beautiful church. The church of ’Saint Aegidius and Saint Martin’ is older than the previous mentioned, and was built in the year 1344. However, a new church was built on this site in 1971/72. The old early-gothic tower has a saddle roof and a step-gable.
