Seemingly endless tunnels lead into the depths of the mountain, lined by shimmering walls of coloured rock-salt in infinite patterns. Enchanted visitors to the largest active salt mine in Austria are led past the “Chamber of Inner Light” and the “Chapel of St Barbara” before sliding down into the heart of the mountain on two miners’ slides directly to the subterranean salt lake. With its unique sound and light presentation, the lake is an unforgettable experience for the entire family.

 

The diversity of the Altaussee Salt Mine fascinates young and old with a stimulating mixture of fun, excitement, wonder and knowledge.
