  • What a fantastic tour! All our family - including 3 kids (15, 13 and 7) loved it. Views from the salt mine are spectacular and the tour itself is informative, fun and unique. The guide flipped...

  • We visit the mine with tour, and I really like the guide it was very cool. I enjoyed the museum part. This salt mine is the oldest mine in the word and I extremely enjoy the movies that they showed during the tour, which very informative and there's a lot to see inside. To use the slides and the short train ride are very fun.
  • Nice place and considering the ticket price covers so many staff and research, it is not that expensive. Recommend you stay in Hallstatt at least one night so you can get the 9am first funicular. Just 15 people or so. You can enjoy the beauty of the scene and the slat mine. One thing important is that, before the funicular entrance, there is a souvenir shop and the WC here is €0.8 per entrance. However, once you pass the entrance, all WC are FREE!
