  • A very special and unique. 300 m underground. A little claustrophobic but doable (I'm suffering but I went 2 times!) the tour is approximately 3 hours. Souvenir shops under ground, Church, football pitch/basketball etc. To see!

  • B. a lot of curiosities in the fascinating way. I recommend, it's worth it. Visit to the Museum is included in the ticket price of admission into the mine, done with a guide.

  • Is a great end to a good day spent in the salt mines if you have time to do it. Our tour was a little rushed at times, but was still great regardless.
