The diversity of the Altaussee Salt Mine fascinates young and old with a stimulating mixture of fun, excitement, wonder and knowledge. You are planning a trip for a group or a trip with your family? The Salt Mine Altaussee is the perfect location.
Deep inside the Altausee salt mine, in the Styrian Salzkammergut, 20 minutes away from Hallstatt, is a world waiting to be explored. A world that reflects the diversity of the events surrounding salt, its history and its importance in a fascinating way.
Seemingly endlessly long tunnels lead into the depths, pure rock salt shimmers in impressive colours on the walls and is seen in repeatedly new forms. Amazed visitors at the largest active salt mine in Austria are led past the “Chamber of Inner Light” and the “Chapel of St Barbara” before sliding down into the heart of the mountain on two miners’ slides: directly to the subterranean salt lake, which with its unique musical- and visual presentation is an unforgettable experience for the entire family. The diversity of the Altaussee Salt Mine fascinates young and old with a stimulating mixture of fun, excitement, wonder and knowledge. The Altaussee Salt Mine is now also open in the winter months for young (from the age of four) and old visitors. We strongly recommend visitors to wear stout footwear and warm clothing.
