Good to know before your visit

The themes covered in the “Underground Classroom” are perfectly suited for children 6 to 15 years of age.

The “Underground Classroom” lasts approximately 1 ½ hours.

In order to give you and your students the best experience possible, we limit the maximum group size to 80 people. If groups have to be divided up, the next group follows roughly 15-30 minutes later.

Temperatures inside the Altaussee salt mine constantly hover around 7°C year-round. Regardless of the weather outside or season, inside the mountain is always cool. Which means, always ensure your pupils are wearing warm clothes and sturdy shoes. At that point, nothing will get in the way of exciting hours spent inside the salt mine!

The guided tours are in German or English. However, other languages are also available using the "Salzwelten Destination Guide", which you can download to your own smartphone for free from the App Store or Google Play Store.

Free bus parking is located right next to the entrance of the salt mine.
