The deep underground tour in the Salt Mine Dürrnberg, one of the oldest salt mines in the world, was interesting. A small train ride that took us deep into the mountain and then a ride down long, polished, wooden slides (great fun) lead to where the salt was mined. Long back the Celts were mining this "White Gold". It was very damp, and the tunnel walls werre slick with moisture. Was wondering how the miners worked there in the olden days. The boat ride in the underground lake, was fascinating. The exhibits along the way were informative.

Really fantastic experience for all ages. We loved the slides and train ride. Could be a bit better organised on the number call and the shop is decent. Also there are things to do there while waiting for your tour number to be called.
