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.
