Journey into Time
The Celts once settled in the high valley of Hallstatt and began mining salt very early on. For the "white gold" was already a valuable commodity more than 5000 years ago. At that time, it was not only used for seasoning, but also for preserving food. Many finds from that era - the Hallstatt period - bear witness to this. And this summer you have the chance to be there live!
