Our group had a wonderful evening in the mines, which included a tour and boat ride, sliding down the salt mine and a great catered dinner with music. Wonderful place and so much fun and laughter.

I wasn't much interested in visiting the salt mines but it came as a part of our tour to Eagle's Nest. But it was actually a fun experience. You sit on a funny little train to go deep into the mountain. You ride a little...More

We liked the tour but I don't think it's worth what you pay for, on top of the entrance fee, we had to pay another 3.50 Euro for parking, just for the amount of time we've been at the tour. Even though it's really informative...More

Hi Shawn, It's a close call between the 2 mines and would likely depend on your location/itinerary. IMHO based purely on a mine visit, Berchtesgaden would get the vote. The wife said it was quicker with less walking. I... More
