Good to know before your visit

In order to reach Salzwelten Hallstatt, you will first have to ride the scenic funicular up to Hallstatt high valley. Then, on the “pathway through time”, you will pass through the world-famous burial grounds, have an opportunity to visit a reconstructed grave and attend a Celtic burial ceremony, finally reaching the Knappenhaus at the entrance to the salt mine. After your guided tour of the world’s oldest salt mine, you will stroll along the footpath back to the mountain terminal. Before riding back down, we highly recommend paying a visit to our spectacular Hallstatt Skywalk “World Heritage View” lookout platform, from where you will be treated to amazing panoramic views of Lake Hallstatt and the surrounding mountains.

The guided tour of the mine takes roughly 1 ½ hours. In total, you will spend around 3 hours at Salzwelten Hallstatt.

In order to give you and your students the best experience possible, we limit the maximum group size to 70 people.

Temperatures inside the Salzburg salt mine constantly hover around 8°C year-round. Regardless of the weather outside or season, inside the mountain is always cool. Which means, always wear warm clothes and sturdy shoes. If you do, nothing will get in the way of exciting hours spent inside the salt mine!

Due to the relatively restricted local circumstances, the only parking for buses is a municipal bus parking area in Hallstatt. Please park here. That said, you must reserve a bus slot in advance by going to www.hallstatt-parking.com. Without a bus slot, you will be unable to enter Hallstatt. Furthermore, you cannot drive up to the entrance of the salt mine directly. PASSENGER ALIGHTING AND BOARDING: AT THE BUS TERMINAL
