Hallein Salt Mine - man stands in tunnel

Salt Worlds Salzburg

Essence of life - You've never discovered salt like this before.  

The oldest visitable mine in the world brings the more than 2500-year history of salt, the "white gold" of earlier centuries, to life. You can follow in the footsteps of the Celts and also explore the world of mining from the Middle Ages right up to the present day. The mine railway is a fun and comfortable way to get into the salt mine, and two long miners' slides lead to the underground salt lake.
You can also find out about the importance of salt - as the essence of life - on the Kelten.Erlebnis.Berg. The Celtic village SALINA, the new show manufactory and a themed playground are best explored playfully with the Salt Worlds app.

Highlights:

  • Newly presented mine tour: four eras of salt mining on the Dürrnberg
  • Salt Manufactory
  • Kelten.Erlebnis.Berg: themed playground, Celtic village and Salt Worlds app

Free background information and context is provided by the Salt Worlds app with audio guide, Augmented Reality Function, virtual adventure game and additional salt knowledge (available in the App Store or on Google Play).
