Our plan was different plan. What attracted us were the images of wooden slides. The whole group loved the experience. There are number of languages that explain the history of the place, which include Deutsche, English, Arabic and a few other languages. There are two...More

We all enjoyed this tour. The history of the salt mines was fascinating. The slide down into the mine was great fun. they do give a walking option if you don't want to do the slide, which someone in our part opted for. No issues...More

We loved this mine. The coveralls were great and the slide into the mine was brilliant. Audioguides in English were provided so we could follow the tour. The tour itself was very interesting and included a train and boat ride. Highly recommended.

This was a great way to spend a rainy day. You can order tickets on line for a set time and skip all the lines. But go early to really avoid the masses. We went at 1010 and only had to wait about 10 minutes....More

After donning a full body work uniform, we boarded the train into the depths of the salt mine. The favorite part for all of us (age 9 - 70) was the slide down. We wish we could have done it time after time. The boat...More

Went to the salt mine after visiting the Königsee. It lasted for around 1.5hr for the whole activity. No cameras allowed inside. You can slide twice for the wooden slide and it was fun! They got audio for non-German speaking people, however the content is...More

This was a nice little tour showing how salt is extracted from the mountains. The trip starts off with a small train ride and couple of slides. The tour is in German, but they do have audio guides in various languages. What could have been...More

This was a great place to visit. You take a train through the mine and then you take a slide down further. That was really fun. Great information on the mine. The only problem was that they rushed you through some rooms like the salt...More

It rains in the alps. A lot. So why not take a train under a mountain and lick a salty wall. We've all been tempted.

Ordering tickets online does help to avoid the queue at the cash register. Once you are through the turn gate, you have to put on overalls. I don't really see the point of this; you won't get wet or dirty and it's not really cold....More

Not sure if public transportation goes that far . it is about an hour from Salzburg.

As the salt mines are in Germany, not in Austria, I think there is no public transportation there. Would recommend the alternative: a local travel agency (Panorama Tours for example).

Probably they will not go for it. They are pretty safe, as long as you can keep your legs up, but they have stairs for those who, for some reason, don't want to go on the slides. No worries, they will still enjoy the tour :)
