And because salt has been associated closely with culture and culinary enjoyment for longer than anyone can remember, during your group outing you should also set aside some time for a good meal.

Wind down after your visit to the salt mine at one of our local partner restaurants, savoring the delicious dishes along with beautiful views out across the Hallstätter See. Have questions?
