The salt mine was very interesting with some beautiful elaborative displays. The major attraction was the slides inside the salt mine and speed recorded while you slide. you can collect the picture clicked while you slide after the end of the tour.

This salt mine helps us with understanding the exact history of Hallstatt and ancient people's life. It's a quite amazing place to witness the beautiful of our creator and wisdom of human beings. In the mine there are plenty of activities to enjoy. Lots of fun there!

You might say it's boring at first... that is what I did. But I ended up loving it. It is the oldest salt mine discovered (anywhere in the world) and you can find out and see a few interesting things.

Walked to the salt mine when it was closed. Really worth it as it was beautiful and incredibly quiet. The view is sensational and worth the 50 min stroll.

Exploring a mine is certainly an amazing experience by itself, but at Hallstatt mine you can enjoy some nice "extras": there are 2 awesome slides to move between its levels and they also show a nice film about how all this salt got there!
