Salt mining since 1517
The Berchtesgaden Salt Mine is located in the central Berchtesgaden Alps, with a sensational panoramic view of the mighty Mount Watzmann. Berchtesgaden is also just 30 minutes away from Salzburg city center.
Since opening in 1517, it remains a unique chronicle of 500 years of uninterrupted salt mining. Become immersed in the world of „white gold“ and experience the amazing atmosphere of mining in the depths of the Alps. The mine’s railway, separated from the mining area by only a rock face, takes you 650 m deep into the mountain, where you’ll find the cavernous Salt Cathedral and the spectacular Miner’s Slide. The one hour tour of the mine provides an exclusive look back at the history of Berchtesgaden salt and also German engineering. The highlights of the underground tour are two wooden miner’s slides, the magic salt room, the mirror lake and much more to experience.
After the guided underground tour do not miss to visit our salt and souvenir shop. Take a look at the world of Bad Reichenhaller products.
