Enjoy one of our children's tours: everything you should know

Our little explorers play a big role: Together with Sally, our clever little mine duck, youngsters get to experience the Hallein Salt Mine from a whole new, and even more fun perspective. On this page, we have put together all of the most important information. Of course, the Salt Mine Team is always here to answer any questions you might have. We look forward to seeing you and your child soon at the Hallein Salt Mine!

Fun above ground for young visitors

Children ages 4 and up are welcome to join Sally on this journey. But there's also lots for even younger guests to discover here as well. For example, we have a fantastic adventure playground next to Salina Celtic Village on the Dürrnberg right by the salt mine. They are also sure to have a wonderful time in the Salt Mine Shop, where they will find marvelous items made of salt - and so much more.
