An evening in the salt mine

Embark on a mysterious journey through Earth's history. Through imaginative and dramatic presentations and exciting information, during the course of the time travel, you will not only learn but experience with all your senses.

With the "Wednesdays shuttle" to the mountain experience.

Every Wednesday evening, there is the shuttle bus from various bus stops in Bad Goisern, Hallstatt and Bad Aussee, which will bring you comfortably to the front gates of the salt mine in Altausee and of course back again.

Your hosts will be happy to help further. And away you go: A family experience whatever time of year and is especially recommended during the winter months is. As the miners’ saying goes “Glück Auf!”
