Omg, if you go to Hallstatt you have to go up in the cable car! Absolutely amazing views from the mountain top, and you can visit the ancient salt mines if you wish whilst up there (we didn't so cannot comment on this). It is...More

Not worth the visit. The only fun thing is probably the slide. Other than that you are basically watching videos on how salt is extracted. No real hands on, we can’t see the salt in the mine. Totally waste of time.

Do not miss this place! At first I’m a bit concerned about the price for combined ticket at 32 (or 34, not sure) Euro but totally worth it.

Great experience. Go up the funicular and take in the views before walking further up to the Salzwelten. The tour itself is great fun and the guide explains the mining process and history along the way.

Very informative, interactive and enjoyable programme. The wooden slides within the mine are exciting, the whole adventure worths its price.
