The team spirit of the miners

The hard and dangerous work below ground has always united miners into a close-knit community. As a group (e.g. as part of a firm or club excursion), follow the trail along a 2500-year history of success while discovering your own team spirit!

Experience the unique atmosphere of a location that, as long ago as 400 BC, had united the Celts into strong teams of miners, in order to mine the “White Gold” in the kilometre-long tunnels.

Learn how the enterprising Archbishop Wolf Dietrich von Raitenau (1559-1617), using the innovative technique of wet mining, was able to extract a huge amount of precious salt, and with the extra money gained, developed Salzburg into a magnificent Baroque city (today an UNESCO World Heritage site).

Deprivation and human fate are also inseparable from the power of the “White Gold” and can be felt to this day in the old tunnels. The group experience begins with the ride together into the mountain and continues rapidly down wooden slides into long-forgotten worlds.
