This place is bonkers! The idea of putting a boating lake in the bottom of an old mine is wonderful - if you are in the area, or even close, then you must go! Above is some natural mineral pools that are worth packing your swimming gear for.

The mine is unique in his way. A big deep hole - the main cavity is 40m deep, 50m wide and 80m loing -, very very below the surface. The main place is full with all kinds of attraction for children and adults to - mini golf, bowling, ferris wheel -. Above it is a smaler cavity with a lake... More

This is really "something else"... Here is a lot going on under the ground, it feels like being in fairy-tale. I strongly recomend the visit.

I did not have any special expectations with this attraction but was very surprised with both the size and the interesting value of the mine. It is a very spetacular experience and is one of the few salt mines. But it is very crowded, so try pick a day where people stay outside and take the stairs up and down.... More

This place is very unique and I really suggest visiting it. Super deep salt mine with a lake in the bottom of it. There are also many exhibits along the walkways down to the mine about the history. The mine itself is very impressive, and there is also a ferris wheel and boats that you can take around the lake... More

The salt mine is very nice, full of activities and chambers to see. It's a must! Beware of the agglomeration, at about 1 pm it's kind of crowded.

Impressive man-made caves. The "holes" are enormous, you can feel the size of the mine walking under the ceiling of the cave. The stairs and and ramps didn't made me feel too save - maybe it's just my problem but investment of 5.8 M € could be used better.

The salt mine consists of two levels, each of them taking you 40 meters under the ground. First level is more of a playground than a tour to the mine, though your kids may like it. Second level takes you to a salty lake you can travel with a boat. There are many other interesting galleries to visit. Three hints:... More

A real big salt mine, that is incredible. 50.000sqm at 200m belove the surface. With a great history, amazing that they have started mineing salt early as 1690. You have some good activities inside, like: going with 2 pers. boats. Play biliard or ping pong. Takeing a ride with a medium sized ferry wheel. A down side to the visit... More
