  • Nothing much to say. It's just gorgeous and worth the visit. Even though it's hour and a half to Salzburg, the whole trip to the small town is really nice. There is a copy town in China, but it's nice...  read more »
  • The price is a cheek for what is available. Our guide could say no whole German movement, let alone in English. During the stops was already told, without having the whole group there was, there was almost no time for photos. The slides are super, rather boring for the rest, very short for children at the age of 2-6Jahren. The only thing we liked was that travel with the train the wars to outside, but also already.

  • It is better than no salt mine tour, but there are other in the area that I enjoyed much more inside. This one requires either a funicular or a long hike. Once you get to the top there is still a pretty long, steep walk to the tunnel entrance. Our tour guide was seemed very bored and didn't seem like he thought it was a very fun place. I would recommend going to one of the other salt mine tours, even run by the same company they just seem better.
  • The tour in the mine was great. It was a fantastic experience. I'd recommend not getting the train and instead hiking up the hill. It's an hours walk but you see things like the imperial mine entrance you'd never see otherwise. Also the view is amazing.
  • Guided Tour was great, very informative. The slide was exciting. There is a platform called 5 fingers(?) give an excellent view to the pond.
  • Really enjoyed the mine tour. The little train ride out was excitingly claustrophobic.
  • Very wonderful place, you can see the best view and can join the tour!
