what our guests say

"For us, the visit to the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine and the Bad Reichenhall Old Salt Works were each an immersion into a completely different world. Fascinating to be confronted with so many new sensations.”

Roland & Sandra, couple

"The dinner in the Berchtesgaden salt mine is really a very special evening event. Good food, atmospheric music deep in the mountain and an exciting guided tour around the topic of salt history - my friends and I were very enthusiastic. The friendly, attentive and fun staff also made the evening memorable.”

Sonja, dinner guest
