On a treasure hunt in the Salzwelten Hallein

Salt used to be described as “White Gold” and it is true that the deposits created millions of years ago in the Dürrnberg, near Hallein have provided the region with its treasure chamber.
More than 2500 years ago, the Celts were already mining this precious mountain resource, as is evident from the traces they left behind.

In Hallein, the oldest mine in the world open to visitors, everyone from the age of four up can take part in a treasure hunt – and follow the mysterious, ancient miners’ tunnels for many kilometres into the mystical mountain.
