Full description
Arrive at the Salt Mine Hallein just outside the city of Salzburg, and go the cashier where you can exchange your voucher for a ticket. Enter the location and meet your tour guide for a short safety briefing.

Begin your walk through the mysterious tunnels of the Hallein Salt Mine accompanied by your guide. Learn about how people mined salt or 'white gold' back in the day and hear stories about how the first miners dug deep tunnels into the mountain over 2500 years ago. Get dressed up in protective clothing and then board a mine railway to travel deep into the salt mine to start your adventure.

The train will take you through more mysterious tunnels, passing a number of informational stops, to the top of the first miner's slide. Take a thrilling slide 50 meters down into the mine along the banks of an underground salt lake. From here, take a short boat ride across the lake and watch a fascinating multimedia show en route. Head down another slide and watch the story of the 'Man Preserved in Salt' brought to life. Find out how in 1577 and again in 1616, records state that bodies of Celtic miners buried by earlier mine collapses were unearthed - their bodies, including clothing, skin, and hair, were preserved by the salt of the mine.

At the end of the mine tour, take the chance to visit the Celtic Village at Salina, and discover the roots of the city of Salzburg.
