SALZWELTEN ALTAUSSEE The mountain of treasures in rock salt

So, tell me, do you feel it, too, that whisp of history? As your fingers brush across the cool, shimmering orange-and-red tunnel walls of pure rock salt. Do you sense the boldness of courageous miners? Do you taste the “spice of life”? No wonder! Because you will discover all of this hidden away inside this “Mountain of Treasures”! Beginning with the medieval mine. Then comes the rescue of inestimably valuable art treasures from destruction by the Nazis. And finally, the mining of “white gold” as it is done today. And can you hear it? The laughter echoing through the tunnel as the mine duck, Sally, slithers down the miners slides with the kids? Just as it should be! Because Altaussee is all of that and more!


Easy arrival:
The Salwelten Altaussee can only be reached by car or on foot and is located approx. 3 km above Altaussee. Here you will find detailed travel directions, so that you can reach your destination quickly and easily.

Parking area: 
Free parking is available at the entrance to the mine.
