Interesting visit Visitors who have difficulty with stairs and lengthy walks should perhaps think carefully about a visit. Movement from one display to another too speedy because following tours coming up behind. Listening devices do not work if your tour guide is round a corner. Tour groups could be smaller because tour leader didn’t wait for the whole group to reach her - gave her info to half the tour and then went on to the next display. On the whole worth seeing. The lift to the surface quite an experience.

It was simple and convenient to arrange the pickup and dropoff for this tour. but the first 45mins was picking up others from their hotels; the actual journey time was less than 45mins each way. The tour itself was interesting but overlong, walking for ages through empty corridor after empty corridor. Our guide spoke very fast and we missed a lot of what was being said as the audio wasn't great either, so the whole tour lacked context (e.g how the salt got there, why it was so valuable, why did they build the cathedral, is the mine still in use).

mooie bezienswaardigheid, prachtig gewoon. De chauffeur die ons kwam ophalen had de zaakjes helaas niet zo goed voor elkaar als de bedoeling. Bij aankomst bij de mijn moest hij de kaartjes nog regelen en duurde het een tijdje voor wij de mijn in konden. Echter het was het wachten wel meer dan waard!
