Thought this was an awesome visit, well worth the journey, we combined it with an Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps tour, Long day but can highly recommend it. Go to the web site and check it out.

This come highly recommended, but we did not think it was anything special. Sure the figures carved in salt are very impressive, but that is pretty much it. The tour is not very good. You get a headset, but if you are more than 5...More

If the stairs are not an issue for you, I think you will be ok with the rest of it. Nothing is wet or slippy in there and you’ll always have a wall or something to hold on to if needed. Good luck.
