  • We visit the mine with tour, and I really like the guide it was very cool. I enjoyed the museum part. This salt mine is the oldest mine in the word and I extremely enjoy the movies that they showed during the tour, which very informative and there's a lot to see inside. To use the slides and the short train ride are very fun.
  • A great 1/2 day excursion! We took the option with the fenicular and right after the fenicular you have the possibility to go on the bridge to see the edge of the view point. After that you have a max 10 min walk to the mine. In between you can do a small picnic. The salt mine it self is great, you have 2 slides of which 1 is 64 m long , you can also walk in case you don't want to take them. Inside you have good explanation of how salt ended up there and how they extract it. At the end you have a little train back. The only thing I would suggest the office to do is give at the entrance better explanation on what you can take with you and what not.
