Special place, nestled by the river in a small steep gulley. Quiet. Almost at the end of the track after a few hours walking.

We were well looked after. We did not make the English tour but the audio guide was excellent and the tour guide gave us a time to be back for the train to the surface and we followed the audio tour at our own pace.

This is an exciting tour of the ancient salt mine. History is well explained and the train ride to get inside makes one wonder the difficult job of mining salt for our consumption. There is small bar inside.

The staff are very welcoming. The audio guide provides good information about what one will find inside. Good for people who do not understand french.

Hi, sorry for the delay! From the train station you can ask for a Taxi (+41 24 471 17 17 or free call 0800 85 84 84) it cost around CHF 22.00. To walk it take about 1h20min.
