In Hallein, the oldest mine in the world open to visitors, everyone from the age of four up can take part in a treasure hunt – and follow the mysterious, ancient miners’ tunnels for many kilometres into the mystical mountain. The perfect day trip...more
All reviews wooden slides train ride celtic village underground lake small train protective clothing german border mining process cross the border english subtitles rainy day tour starts fun slides great fun interesting tour a lot of fun boat trip
Our group of 4 took a tour of the mines and had a good time. The tour is very interesting and it is told through series of entertaining videos (nice amount of humor) and live descriptions from the tour guide. You get to see all...More
We went on the bus from Saltzburg to this tour, we missed the second bus up to the mine so got a taxi rather than lose an hour. Loved the Celtic village reconstruction we had time before our tour, the tour itself was brilliant starting...More
we came with the children's in a rainy day. its a nice experience. to walk inside the mine under the earth. to understand the history of the place, the children like the train inside and out. there are only few sitting places, that doesn't fit...More
Our family loved this experience! We bought our tickets online which made the checkin process really easy. We arrived early so we had time to walk through the Celtic Village. It had several interactive aspects and an audio guide you could download. The mine tour...More
A great family trip and adventure. Had hoped to get there on way back from Croatia but didn’t know when we’d arrive so we booked online whilst speeding up the Autobahn and still a few hours away, fortunately we got there in good time. This...More
Traveling in December (most salt mine were closed) except for the one in Salzburg. We are a family with children of 8 and 10. Bought the ticket online and received an email confirmation of time and date. Printed out the confirmation letter and make sure...More
Although I'm from Salzburg I hadn't visited the salt mine since I was a kid. I took my boyfriend there who lives in a different part of Austria. Hands down - we had the best time! Not only were we educated about history and salt...More

Our kids loved the slides and the train inside, but the guide almost ran through the tunnels and we had a hard time translating his explanations to our kids.
At the end of the tour the guide was begging for a fee-which I think is...More

The tour about an hour - but arrive earlier to change into the special outfits for sliding down the mine levels. We stayed for a quick lunch - not haute cuisine but tasty, My son had Schnitzel and I had soup. Loved the gift shop - very fair priced souvenirs - a better deal than in Salzburg. Our tour was in English by a delightful young lady dressed in the very formal miners uniform. What a summer job for a college girl!
e also considered two other mines but opted for one close to Salzburg so we could spend the afternoon in town. We did miss out on the museum in Hallein, which is said to contain collection of artifacts from the Celtic people who lived here several thousand years ago.
