"SALINA" - village of the Celts on the Dürrnberg

There are many books that recount the daily life of Celts. But actually experiencing their daily life yourself, well, that's something different. That's why Salina Celtic Village on the Dürrnberg exists. Located right next to the salt mine in Hallein, it takes you back to the world as it was 2,600 years ago - to the exciting days of the Celts. Join us for this journey through time!

Immerse yourself in the daily life of the Celts, stroll through their homes and workshops, detailed replicas created in close cooperation with the Celtic Museum in Hallein. Life-size illustrations show you what it was like to live and work in a Celtic settlement. Thanks to archaeological excavations of grave sites on the Dürrnberg and other finds from Ice Age settlements elsewhere, it was possible to reconstruct countless little details precisely. The Dürrnberg, incidentally, is one of the most important Ice Age dig sites in Central Europe.
