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.

The scenography is a bit Hollywoodian but good enough for children. I confess I had some safety concerns when we rode on the train towards the end of the tunnel which is particularly challenging for the tallest ones amongst us.

What a great experience - even with kids aged 5 and 6 this was well worth the effort and money. Be sure to pack some long trousers and a blouse as the mountain is 8 degrees Celsius all year round. Our guide Manuel was the...More

We chose the salt mines because we hadn't enough time to do the caves and we weren't disappointed. The guide was nice and the cave quite impressive. There's a lot of short multimedia movies on salt formation, the mines and archaeology. Two slides are quite...More

If you are in Hallstatt, you must see the salt mine. It is said to be the oldest in the world. You take a tram up the mountain (or you can walk) to breathtaking views of Hallstatt and the lake. Then you walk even further...More

No, not that I am aware of and definitely no parking. Ample parking by the funicular bottom station by the village.

I would recommend not taking a tour at all and just catching the train from Salzburg to Hallein. Then catch the local bus to the salt mine and other sites you want to explore. It's not complicated, we did it with all seven... More
