If you are going to Hallstatt do not miss the salzwelten mine. This is a great experience to see the sky deck to have a view of wonderful hallstatt and also going inside the salt mine and the tour is worth the money spent, the kids would love the slides inside the salt mine and also remember to download the app in your phone so you can listen to audio guide as you walk into the salt mine

When you emerge from the tunnel, take the P place to the right (there is parking in the city center, but it will be full). When you emerge from the parkplatz you can see signs for the funiculaire. The basic cost is 9 Euro to just go up and return. There are several toilets on the way, even at the top. Nice cafe with drinks and food.

Be prepared for a very very long walk. Hard on your legs but I have never before seen such a beautiful place and such a well organised one too
An audio app is available, at each stop ( there are altogether 13 before you actually enter the mine area) there are explanation booths too.
Go early, the last car up ends by 4 pm and each mine tour - after you reach the mine area - is about 80 to 90 minutes.
You have to wear overalls - free and lockers are also free - and some places you have to watch your head. Some places it’s really narrow - if you are claustrophobic it can be a little scary. But not to be missed.
You are going inside a mine so be prepared for darkness. It’s a mine tour so it’s not actual activity but they have a slide going down about 60 feet ( I opted out and walked down) which is thrilling for teenagers.
The docu - movies shown are perfectly positioned and very informative. It’s cold( overalls protect you well) and you are allowed to taste the actual salt of the mine

We visited the salt-mine on Tuesday 28 May .
The Salzwelten doesn’t provide you an option to opt out of the tour, regarding the tunnel train ride which is very scary and claustrophobic for 10 minute ride that seemed like years !!

There is no mention before purchasing your tickets nor during about the tunnel . Towards the end the tour guide mentions we have a surprise s for you all , one was the tunnel !!

It was the first time entering a salt mine and it was worth it! The salt mine is apparently still functioning and they have a tourist route just for tourist. There are 2 slides which add on to the excitement of the tour, the last “train” ride out was cool as well. Definitely worth a visit. Especially good for rainy day as we were there when it was rainy. You will need to hike up after the funicular ride but it was okay. Do wear proper shoes and jacket as it can get cold inside.
