Description

A thrilling underground adventure awaits in a large salt mine outside of Salzburg. Dressed in a miner's protective clothing, descend into a mysterious world on an electric train and a wooden slide just like a miner. Learn about salt mining traditions and techniques, then hop on a raft to cruise a lake inside the cave system.

Admire the Baroque elegance of Hellbrunn Palace, a former bishop's residence, as you drive out of town on your way to an exhilarating experience at Berchtesgaden Salt Mine. Put on protective clothing upon arrival, and strike a pose for a photograph in your miner's outfit before you start your journey into the unknown.

Get inside the mountain and descend into the mineshafts aboard an electric train. Learn about the fascinating history of salt mining in the Alps from an expert guide as you go through the maze of branching channels.

Continue the adventure with a slide that takes you deeper beneath the surface of the ground. Hop on a raft and marvel at the cave system as you peacefully glide on an otherworldly subterranean lake.

4/5 Aug 15, 2019

Fun experience, explanations (teachings) seemed a bit rushed, not really comfortable with asking questions. Would like to know more about current methods of salt extraction and processing. Overall a fun experience
