SALZWELTEN ALTAUSSEE The mountain of treasures in rock salt

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! You will discover all of this and more, hidden away inside this “Mountain of Treasures”! Beginning with the medieval mine, followed by the rescue of inestimably valuable art treasures from destruction by the Nazis, and finally, the mining of “white gold” as it is done today. Can you hear it? Laughter, too, echoes through the tunnel as the mine duck, Sally, glides down the miners slides with the kids. As it should be, because Altaussee is an adventure for all!
