On the trail of salt:
An adventure mine for all the senses
The Berchtesgaden Salt Mine is the oldest active salt mine in Germany. Salt has been mined here in the depths of the Alps for more than 500 years. Dive with us into the world underground and look forward to many unforgettable impressions that you will not only experience during the guided tour, but experience with all your senses.
The Berchtesgaden salt mine has been active since 1517. Up to 1.000.000m3 of brine are extracted annually.
Mystical adventure underground: The mine train takes you 650 metres into the salt mine.
Fun and action are not only promised by our two slides with a length of up to 40 metres.
Due to the 12 degrees Celsius below ground all year round, warm clothing (functional clothing) is recommended. Sturdy shoes are also an advantage due to the nature of the ground. Overalls to protect your clothes are available on site. The overalls are compulsory to wear and are available up to size 4XL.Even young children receive an overall.
No, for safety reasons filming and photography is not allowed in the Berchtesgaden salt mine.
