If you want to have a big fun in the summer, do not miss this attraction. I have been here twice, and I enjoyed both a lot. The temperature inside the cave is much lower than outside and what you will see inside is amazing. It worth the amount you should pay.

Not our usual kind of activity but very interesting none the less. €26 each for the cable car up and down and tour was good value. Guide speaks in both German and English so very helpful!

This was a really informative and fun tour of Hallstatt's Salt Mine which the whole family enjoyed. Our guide was funny and spoke both German and English which she alternated between when giving the tour. We learnt about some of history of the mine (and its workers), geology and the oldest staircase in the world which they had on show,... More

The visit to the salt mines was certainly the highlight of our Austria trip. Our kids thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The drive to Hallstatt from Salzburg is lovely. The parking at the bottom of the mines is easily accessible. The slides are a hoot! And,the train ride at the end is fun. While there, don't miss the viewing platform. It... More

The highlight of the trip are the miners' slides and the train out. That's a fun way of getting a bit of taste of the miner's world. I also appreciated the movies that are quite educative and done in a very fun and creative way. The trip to the salt mine on the funicular or walking is also a nice... More

The more adventure-oriented will love the wooden slides on your way in and the salt mine train ride on your way out. Those who are interested in history will appreciate the oldest wooden staircase in Europe and much, much more!

You start with a funicular ride up the mountain followed by a short walk. You can also visit the well known viewing platform on your way up. The tour started after a brief stop at the cafe, after which they give you protective wear, to be worn over your clothes. The tour has a nice walk along the tunnels and... More

This was my second visit to this little town of Hallstatt with an amazingly large history. This time we decided to take the mine tour. Part of my problem is not speaking German. English translations, both spoken and written, were usually quite abbreviated. Sometimes they were entirely omitted. This tour involves many modes of "transportation," but mostly walking and stair-climbing.... More

Had a month touring Germany and Austria and this was the (surprisingly) highlight of our tour. Both adults and kids (4 and 6) loved the experience of the salt mines, the tour is well thought through and has a variety of active and multi-media tasks. The slides were great fun as was the train ride at the end, highly recommend... More
