Berchtesgaden Salt Mines, Berchtesgaden
(4.2/5 based on 1,000+ reviews on the web)
Delve 300 m (984 ft) beneath the Bavarian Alps at Berchtesgaden Salt Mines. Amazingly, this working salt mine has been constant use since 1517 and today employs almost 100 workers. Don a reflective suit and hop into specialized underground mine cars. At the end of the ride, you'll get to see the mine's subterranean Mirror Lake. Throughout, you can learn about the age-old industry of harvesting salt from the composite rock. You can eat afterward in a restaurant located in the former machinery building. Admission is only available via guided tour. Berchtesgaden Salt Mines is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Berchtesgaden Edition.

  • 用力推薦從Berchtesgaden車站搭巴士304,僅十分鐘抵達卻乏人問津的鹽山礦Berchtesgaden Salt Mines Salzbergwerk鹽礦,比起台灣人較熟悉的國王湖(Königssee)人滿為患且鬧哄哄,紀念品電又大同小異的湖區,鹽礦結合科技、遊樂區來說鹽礦故事、分享知識、歷史等且遊人適中,真是太好玩了! 
  • We were with our three-year son in the mine. I knew it already by several recent visits to your own youth, last about 15 years ago. A visit to the mine is simply part of, if you're in the area. Both the train ride into the mountain, as also the two slides or the raft trip on the Lake, all very nice experiences. Logically, that in the meantime much modern laser shows and Beamerprojektionen were attached when I's also shame find this lost the somewhat mysterious charm. But for the masses, that storm on here throughout the year, that's understandable. Explains everything but very nice and easy to understand. Our guide was open for questions and gave much trouble. Generally, the staff were very obliging and friendly. The price is reasonable. For young and old a highlight, again and again. But those who are purely interested in historical things, I recommend the old saline in Reichenhall. Adventure and entertainment there is more in the mine. Visiting with children 3 years of age is not a problem. Our son found it "cool!" That says it all. Two images are made. The pictures cost €5 the piece and can be purchased at the end. Nice reminder, if you want. The sanitary facilities are very clean. Tour lasts an hour. With children be sure before again on the toilet. Small Tip: buy tickets online. During the season there forever waiting. In the off season, this is not necessary. We have loaded it on the iPhone and bought the evening before online. All totally straightforward with no waiting.

  • It's very well run round trip in the mines. If You have never been in a mine, this is a place go. We had a bad weather this day so this was a very good option. Remember to book in advance, this was ve...  more »
