"Glück Auf" - Good Luck from the Salt Mine in Hallstatt

On the trail of the "Man in Salt" in the oldest salt mine in the world!


  • WE ARE CLOSED and will start again on the 25th April 2015
  • Opening times

Take the panorama funicular railway up the mountain 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. Beams of light from the torches sweep over the glistening rock face and briefly illuminate the places where hard-working miners laboured so very long ago.

Our opening times.

Fast miners’ slides eventually take you to the subterranean salt lake in the heart of the mine, where a multimedial show presents the “white gold” that has been mined in Hallstatt from immemorial time. After a brief pause you take the miners’ railway back to daylight and the Hallstatt High Valley, which now appears in a whole new light.
