  • I had no idea that they have been mining salt here since 70bc. That's a long time. Tour was a bit of an adventure with slides and all, guide was good.  more »
  • Fascinating educational experience with an in depth tour of the salt mine and the tunnels. However at €16 each this is an expensive trip and certainly won't be for everyone  more »
  • After hearing some-one else say, no, I'm not going there, I only use sea salt, we went there anyhow to learn the tale of the origins of the salt-mines in the ancient mountains of Austria. Graphic expl...  more »

  • The saltmine was very interesting. I was the only non German person on the tour of 20 people, so I got a free audio guide. The guide paid attention to me, asking if I had any questions throughout. I can definitely recommend paying a visit if you're​ in the area. The price was 15 euros for students. It might not be worth it if you have claustrophobia, as the path gets a bit tight in some places (appr. 2x1m). Remember to bring warm clothes, the mine inside is about 7 degrees Celsius inside The place isn't very picturesque, so don't bother bringing a large camera. Overall I give thisplace 5 stars
  • Interesting tour into the past, but with little bit few information about WW2 time. All in all, worth to visit.
  • The 'little brother' of the three mines. Very nice history telling and a good guide, who only speaks German by the way! The tour starts every hour. The tour starts and ends with a walk of 700 mtr into the mountain, so good foodwear is a must! We loved it here, the mine is very genuine and gives you the feeling of being a miner off to work. Definitely a visit to remember!
  • Very good tour. It was calm so I had a guide for me alone. Certainly the effort. It is only 7 degrees inside. So best slightly thicker clothing. The drive takes about 90 min

  • With the directions, you should consider some km mountain high needs and the parking lot at the entrance while free being but just not particularly large in Altaussee. We parked on the larger P1, which is approximately 500m below the entrance was. Then €18 per person. Also that once sounds like quite a bit, but you get a lot available - right first is dressed as a miner and then it goes in 1.5 hours deep in the mountain, where the history of the tunnel (including camped here the Nazis looted art) on multimedia edited. And at the end of the big highlight - it goes 2 miner slides down up in an old Concert Hall, which unfortunately today may no longer be used due to the legal situation. I have visited has been the one or the other mine, whether it was salt, coal or iron ore, even a mercury mine, but in the Altaussee salt worlds you get what really. For me predicate worth a visit!
