The Celtic Mountain Discover the 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 Salzburg salt mine, it takes you back to the world as it was 2,600 years ago - to the exciting days of the Celts. Join us from April 2021 on for this adventure through time!

Salina: The Celtic Village

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.

At the newly staged information center we open a window into the settlement history of the Dürrnberg and the exciting search for traces of the archaeologists. The original finds can be admired in the Hallein Celtic Museum.

AR researcher app: Playful discovery

The salt story and the world of Celts. While you stand like a Celt in the Celtic Village built true to the original, our AR researcher app will introduce you wirtually to life as it was over 2500 years ago. Switch on your smartphone and away you go. Best of all: the open-air museum can be explored by adventurers of all ages.
