This is our second visit to Bavaria and we had to come back to the salt mines. My kids absolutely love it. It was informative and fun! Train, slides, boat ride underground, and then a type of elevator back to the top. I can't wait...More

If you are in area of Salzburg, don’t miss this attraction. Well balanced to be suitable for different generation, slightly biased towards fans of nature and technology.

A good way to present the tour, staring with a train ride, walking, slides and a small boat. The tour was in German, but headsets were available for English and other languages. The guide shared some information, but did not go into much detail.

Great tour with train ride into mine. Educational tour through mining and it’s impact on the area. Fun slide ride to lower level with a board ride across an underground lake.

It was fairly busy when we visited (September 2017), with a lot of people milling around the ticket area - a mixture of people waiting for tickets and those who had already paid. When we purchased our tickets we told that we would get our...More

In my oponion, if you are already visiting a salt mine, I would not visit another one since you only have a day trip to Salzburg. We spent two days in Munich and stopped at this salt mine on the way to Salzburg where we... More
