The Zell am See region has been the locale for lost Nazi loot in novels. It also is a scenic area with a mining museum. It is now back in the news with an AP story today on found Nazi loot. Happy hunting and sightseeing.


Lost Nazi treasure: :
The Fischhorn Castle was the last SS Headquarters of World War II. Many believe gold and other valuables were dumped in Zell am See lake during the closing days of World War II. The notation on the bottom of the map "possible location of Himmler's car containing gold, jewels, Etc." These 4 maps were prepared by U.S. Counter Intelligence and found in Record Group 38, National Archives.

Found Nazi treasure: :
An 800-year-old, gold-plated crucifix that went missing after being seized by the Nazis has been found in a rubbish skip in Austria, police said.

The crucifix, made of copper and enamel, was crafted in Limoges, France, and was part of a Polish art collection brought to Austria during Nazi rule, Josef Holzberger, police spokesman in Salzburg, said on Thursday.

It was found in 2004 in the lakeside winter resort of Zell am See by a woman combing through a skip filled with the discarded possessions of a neighbor who had just died.
