your experience

Begin your journey from Salzburg to the salt mines of Berchtesgaden along with an expert tour guide. You’ll discover some spectacular views as you look out your window and make your way up the mountain. Once you get to the top, you’ll be given overalls to wear on top of your clothes before entering the salt mines. Sit back and relax aboard the mine railway as you make your way into the shafts.

While exploring the mines, your guide will tell you all about the fascinating history of Alpine salt-mining and the significance of the area. Listen and observe closely as you cruise through a maze of branching tunnels.

Once you’re in the heart of the salt mine, you’ll reach a slide that goes deep down into the ground - an adventurous treat for the young and old! Make your way down the slide to a raft waiting to take you on a thrilling boat ride. Hold on to your boat and let your senses have a unique experience as you float through the dark on the underground boat ride.

The last part of your tour includes a walk around the scintillating town of Berchtesgaden and its spectacular sights and sounds.
