An ancient mercury mining district. Moschellandsberg is world famous for being the type locality and providing by far the best crystals of the silver mercury amalgam moschellandsbergite. But also fine calomel crystals, native mercury, cinnabar and many rare mercury minerals make Moschellandsberg very interesting for the collector.

Documented mining activities started around 1440 with heydays in the 16th, 18th and 19th centuries. Last activities started in 1934 but due to the poor mercury content of the remaining ores all mining work finally stopped in 1942.

The northern slope of Landsberg hill where all mines were located, is covered by innumerable dumps and collapsed adits and shafts making it hard to decide whether the land's surface is natural or changed due to mining activities. However, it is extremely difficult today to find any minerals that are of interest for collectors.
