  • A fantastic highlight to visit during an Austria tour. An old train takes you deep inside the mountain into the historic salt mine, which apparently is still in operation in some parts. The tour and introduction are very well thought out.
  • Hallstatt.......many has already written about it and I can only agree with everything that already was written before. Just come over here and see for yourself. Most people come for 1 day only. I suggest to stay min 3 days and really take time to enjoy the town and scenery. ❤
