  • First off no children under 4 allowed with good reason, it's just not suitable, be prepared to walk what seems forever uphill, it's quite a steep incline and then a ton of steps. Once in the mine...  more »
  • The Salzwelten salt mine and the neighbouring bronze age tombs are definitely a great way to spend half a day in Hallstatt. Ideally get your tourist card for discounted tickets, they are not cheap...  more »

  • My boyfriend and I decided to walk from town up to the salt mine on a whim. I had no idea there would be slides inside. SO MUCH FUN! I absolutely loved it. Great experience.
  • The mine visit is not so enjoying and the tour organization is pretty bad, the waiting times might sumarize almout 1 hour. The view from the mine towards the town Hallstatt and the lake with the same name is quite nice.
