  • Salzburg: Berchtesgaden Salt Mines and Underground Boat Ride

    1. Salzburg: Berchtesgaden Salt Mines and Underground Boat Ride

    The tour will take you from Salzburg straight to the entrance of the salt mines of Berchtesgaden. There, you will receive overalls to protect your clothing before climbing aboard the mine railway and traveling down into the shafts. An expert guide will lead you through the maze of branching tunnels and explain the fascinating history of Alpine salt-mining. The adventure continues with a slide, taking you yet deeper into the ground – an exciting experience for young and old! Finally, right at the bottom of the mine, climb aboard a raft to journey across the extraordinary underground salt lake. Before heading back to Salzburg, discover Berchtesgaden and its breathtaking scenery.

    Our trip to the salt mines was awesome. Our guide, Walter, was excellent. He gave us a lot of facts and history on Salzburg as well as the Berchtesgaden salt mine and surrounding area.
