Overview
Long lines reflect the popularity of Poland’s Wieliczka Salt Mine, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, meaning visitors often have to wait in advance of one hour. Save time with skip-the-line entry to the mines, which are comprised of more than 2,400 chambers featuring art galleries, a cathedral, and mining technology. During a guided tour, you’ll learn about the rich history of the subterranean wonderland.
What to Expect

Meet your guide 15-minutes prior to your chosen start time at Wieliczka Salt Mine. Experience the underground labyrinth that stretches over nine levels at 210 to 1,073 feet (64 to 327 meters) below the surface of the Earth. The maze of nearly 2,400 chambers is connected with sidewalks that have a total length of 803 feet (245 km).

The tour starts with a descent down the stairs to the depth of 210 feet (64 meters). Visitors are led through a number of chambers and shown underground lakes, shrines, and salt monuments.

The first tourist trail in Wieliczka was established as early as at the turn of the 19th century. A couple of centuries later the salt mine was designated as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites (1978). The underground trail leads through numerous drifts, galleries and chambers, where traces of mining activity have been preserved, as well as examples of sacred art, theme compositions relating to the history of the mine and legends.

Wielicza Salt Mine is the world's largest mining heritage museum with a collection encompassing unique pieces of mining equipment reflecting the development of mining techniques from the Middle Ages until today. Moreover, the microclimate of the mine has a beneficial impact on visitors who suffer from asthma and allergies.

The trip finishes at the level of 443 feet (135 meters) below the surface before taking an elevator back to the surface at the end of the tour.

Hi there are plenty of large sections but the corridors although spacious could give concern to someone who is claustrophobic and definitely the lift back to the surface which is very small

I believe there is a certain amount of the mine that you can see, but I would double check by contacting them directly.
