About the Name
The group's name refers to the mineral wealth and the historic mining terms associated with it. Gold was both in the Rauris Valley ( at Kolm - Saigurn ), as well as in the Gastein Valley ( in Radhausbergmassiv ) degraded, and helped the two valleys - and also the archbishopric of Salzburg - since the High Middle Ages to enormous wealth. Only in the 19th century the mines was finally stopped due to unprofitability. But still you can wash in the Rauris gold. Peaks like Goldberg tip ( 3073 m) and Goldzechkopf ( 3042 m ) are reminiscent of a bygone era of gold mining in the Hohe Tauern. In addition was also silver - as the silver penny (2600 m) suggests - and other precious metals mined and found gems ( aquamarine, garnet, and others).
The boundary of the Goldberg group is formed by the Alpine Club classification of the Eastern Alps, where it is the group No. 42 as follows:
- Salzach from Rauris to the confluence of the guest Ache
- Guest Ache ( Gastein Valley ) - Nassfeld - Niederer Tauern - Mallnitzbach to the confluence with the Möll
- Moelltal ( first east-southeast to Winklern, then northwards ) to Heiligenblut - Tauernbach - Hochtor - Seidlwinkltal - Rauris - Rauris
After the mountain range outline for the Austrian cave Directory by Trimmel, in which the group has the number 2580 on the delimitation no Mallnitzer Mountain ( Nassfeld ) but the High Tauern ( Anlauftal ) is taken.
Adjacent Mountain Ranges
Together with the Ankogelgroup, the Glockner Group, the Schober Group, the Kreuzeckgruppe, the Granatspitzgruppe, the Venediger Villgratner the mountains and the Rieserfernergruppe forms the Goldberg group the large group of the Hohe Tauern.
The Goldberg Ruppe borders the following other mountain groups in the Alps:
After the mountain range outline for the Austrian cave directory, the group is divided as follows:
- Sadniggruppe in Möllknie
- Sonnblick Böseckgruppe between Hüttwinkltal and Moelltal
- Gamskarlspitzengruppe between the Gastein Valley and Mallnitztal
- Edelweißspitze group between Fuschertal and Raurisertal up to the Salzach
- Hocharngruppe between Hüttwinkltal, Seidlwinkeltal and high door ( Grossglockner High Alpine Road)
- Bernkogel Türchlwandgruppe between Rauris and Gastein Valley up to the Salzach
The Edelweißspitze group ( Radhausbergmassiv ) is counted after the AVE has to Ankogelgroup.
