Create an itinerary including Salzwelten Salzburg
Learn about the history and the importance of "white gold" at Salzwelten Salzburg, the world's oldest salt mine. The mine dates back at least 7,000 years to the time of the Celtic tribes. It has served as a museum since World War I. Take part in a treasure hunt by following the mysterious, ancient miners' tunnels into the mystical mountain. Take a 400 m (1,300 ft) electric train ride to reach two sets of 42 m (138 ft) wooden slides. Slide down to the lower level of the mine on a wooden rail. Take a boat trip across an underground lake before exiting the mine. Planning Hallein trip won't be overwhelming when you use Inspirock's itinerary maker.

  • This was a unique experience! As a sufferer from claustrophobia, I was not sure that I would manage but I was pleasantly surprised! It was challenging to be underground, but the passages were such...

  • So much more fun than I expected! Plenty of cool activities and things to see with enough interactive elements to keep you involved. Great for groups and families. One of the best things to do while in Salzburg. You MUST book a tour and it's strongly suggested you do it online in advance. English and German options available.
  • One of the best attractions in saltzburg and Austria. The mine tour includes train ride, slides and a bot tour The entire mine is interactive and is fascinating leaving you with a awe effect. Prices vary but adult admission is 30€ and is definitely worth it. Do note that you can use the saltzburg card here and plan your trip to maximise it. The inside of the mine is 10 degree Celsius so wear a sweater so you don't freeze! Photos of you are taken during the tour and is available at a price of 7.9€
