Salzwelten Hallein

Salzwelten Hallein

more infos
Salt used to be described as “White Gold” and it is true that the deposits created millions of years ago in the Dürrnberg, near Hallein have provided the region with its treasure chamber. More than 2500 years ago, the Celts were already mining this precious mountain resource, as is evident from the traces they left behind.
In Hallein, the oldest mine in the world open to visitors, everyone from the age of four up can take part in a treasure hunt – and follow the mysterious, ancient miners’ tunnels for many kilometres into the mystical mountain.
The Salzwelten offer fun and excitement for young and old all year round. The temperature in the mine is a constant 10° Celsius, therefore warm clothing and sturdy footwear are recommended in summer!

For all those who must remain outside for safety reasons (children are only admitted to the mine from the age of four), there is still much to discover above ground: at the Celtic Village (right next to the Salzwelten) there is a fantastic playground, the Salzwelten Bistro offers nourishment and warmth, and time seems to fly by in the Salzwelten Shop.

  • Hold tight: the pit railway takes you into the mine – and out again!
  • Keep your eyes peeled: the tour through the fascinating salt mine lasts 75 minutes.
  • Rush along: speed measurement on two long miners’ slides!
  • Ship ahoy: with a raft we float over the newly designed salt lake.

The ticket also includes additional services free of charge:

  • Visit to the Celtic Village SALINA on the Dürrnberg
  • Admission to the Celtic Museum in the town of Hallein
  • The history of the famous Christmas song at the Silent Night Museum in Hallein

Since 1960, the Eagle’s Nest has been under the administration of the Berchtesgaden – Königssee Tourist Office and has been leased out as a mountaintop restaurant. The imposing building with its massive foundation walls is typical of the architecture preferred during the National Socialist era. The ascent from the bus arrival zone into the building is most unexpected: a stone-lined tunnel leads 124 meters (406 ft) straight into the side of the mountain. At the end of the tunnel an elegant brass-lined elevator takes visitors on a 41-second ride another 124 meters (406 ft) up through the heart of the mountain and into the building itself. At the summit, visibility permitting, visitors can enjoy a breathtaking panoramic view over the Berchtesgadener Land.

Schafbergbahn und Wolfgangsee-Schifffahrt

more infos
The SchafbergBahn is the steepest cogwheel railway in Austria. Since 1893 mighty steam locomitives have powered their way from the lake-side base station at Wolfgang to the 1783 m high summit of the Schafberg.
The SchafbergBahn allows every visitor to conquer the mountain in comfort and style, making the entire journey an unforgettable experience! Trains are in service from the end of April through to October.
Once on the top, magnificent Alpine views and warm Austrian hospitality beckon. Visit the Hotel Schafsbergspitze, Austria’s oldest mountain inn, originally dating from 1862. From the top you may see numerous Alpine lakes and the Dachstein glacier. In 2012 the Hotel Schafbergspitze celebrated its proud 150th anniversary!
The trip to the top of the Schafberg starts at the lake-side base station in St. Wolfgang. After a few minutes, the track crosses the provincial border between Salzburg and Oberösterreich, before continuing its steep ascent through lush fields and green forests. At Dorneralm (1015m/3330ft above sea level) the first crossing point is reached. This is where the historic steam locomitives pause to take water. The next stop is the quaint station of Schafbergalpe at 1363 m (4472 ft). From there it takes another 10 minutes for the train to reach the summit. This segment is probably the most spectacular and already offers impressive views in multiple directions.
