Leave Salzburg and travel towards Hellbrunn, just a few kilometres south of the city. After putting on typical miners' gear, you'll board a special train and set off into the heart of the mountains where the salt mines are located.

Your guide will take you through the galleries of this remarkable underground world. Throughout your visit, you'll hear fascinating stories about salt formation and extraction techniques. Your guide will also explain how miners transport the salt and how it is used.

You'll then be taken on a unique raft trip across the salt lake before heading back to Salzburg, with lovely views of the Untersberg peak along the way.

This unique tour is a one-of-a-kind opportunity to discover the hidden world of the salt mines and learn all the secrets of the mining industry by an expert guide!
