Overview

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.

There is a bit of walking from the cable car to the mine entrance. You may want to send them an email or Facebook message for more information and options. Enjoy your visit. Hallstatt is beautiful!
