SALZWELTEN HALLSTATT Family adventure in the world’s oldest salt mine

Gently the wind caresses your face. The lake glistens far below you. Like the colorful pearls of an exquisite necklace, the houses along the shoreline stand side by side. You feel the breadth, squint into the sun and enjoy the warmth. A welcome blessing, indeed, after an expedition that involved miners’ slides and subterranean salt lakes amid the cool depths of the mountain. An ancient-yet-modern world, hidden within tunnels and passageways. Realizing that you are walking along the same paths trodden by prehistoric miners some 7000 years ago. And that people once lived here for whom an entire age of human history was named. Things you might never have guessed …


Easy arrival:
The funicular to the salt mine is located right in the village Hallstatt. Here you will find a description of how to travel here quickly and conveniently.

Parking area: 
Salzwelten Hallstatt do not offer any own visitor parking spaces. Please allow plenty of time to find a parking space when you arrive in Hallstatt. Due to the large influx of guests it can come to time delays. We recommend arriving by public transport.
