Take the panorama funicular railway up the mountain at Hallstatt to discover the mysterious attraction of this mystical area. The path leads to the tunnel mouth and into a unique underground world first dug by hand more than 3000 years ago: many kilometres of tunnels lead deep into the rock interior. Enjoy a day full of fun and information at the Salt Mine Hallstatt for the hole family.

Not as impressive as the salt mine in Poland but still worth a visit since it is the oldest in the world.

I learned a lot about the history of salt mining. Our tour guide Sybil was great and answered even out silly questions:). Highly recommended.

The tour was a waste of time. Just buy a ticket for funicular. There is still a scenic walk involved and they have informative sign posts very so often (in multiple languages ). The tour wasn't that informative and we spent at least 45 minutes...More

After walking from the funicular railway up the hill to the entrance of the salt mine we were provided with overalls to protect our clothes before heading into the mine. Positives: amazing views on the walk up the hill, incredible viewing platform, interesting and informative...More

Not really worth the money nor time , it’s like a tourist trap. Makes more sense to buy a book and get a nice place next to the lake. U ll enjoy it more...

Take cable car to see top view of Hallstatt and visit the oldest salt mine. Great experience and fun! Tip: Go early in the morning to avoid

Not much good - a lot of the information is in German with subtitles in English and obviously abbreviated. It is expensive but there is no substance to it. The highlight is the slide..... My advice is go to Poland and the “Wieliczka” Salt Mine.

There is a flight of stairs next to each slide. Frankly the walk from the gondola to the entrance may be more arduous. Use your phone flashlight or bring a little light for the walk in the mine. It's unclear what type of... More

No, you don't. You buy the ticket at the foot of the skywalk lift if you choose to or when you come up in the entrance of the salt mine. The tour goes every 1 hour mby 1 hour and a half, and they take 65 people. Our group... More

You can walk up to the salt mine. However it is a steep walk. The entrance fee includes also the cable car ride.
