Salt Mine

Embark on a journey of discovery
 
The guided tour through the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine is a special experience, particularly for families. It's not just an excellent guided tour which awaits you here… there are also the healing galleries and the Dinner in the Salt Mine event.

Salt mining has played a decisive role in Berchtesgaden for centuries and the history of the salt mine can be traced back to the 12th century, making it one of the oldest mines in Europe.

BERCHTESGADEN SALT MINE

In 2007, the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine was transformed into the themed attraction it is today. A special train will take you inside the salt mine, where you will negotiate slides, cross the Mirror Lake and learn a great deal of interesting information about the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine and salt mining in general.

THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE TOUR

  • Duration: 1½ hours
  • Closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, New Year's Day, 1st November, Good Friday and Pentecost
  • Please be aware that the temperature within the mine remains at a constant 12°C all year round.

SALT HEALING GALLERIES IN THE BERCHTESGADEN SALT MINE

The salt healing galleries are completely separate from the theme park attraction. Here, it's more about health and recovery. The air is free of pollen and dust, and remains at a constant temperature and humidity. This allows the body to regenerate, meaning you can recover nicely. Staying in the healing galleries is said to strengthen the immune system and is an excellent complement to your wellness holiday with us at the EDELWEISS.

DINNER IN THE SALT MINE

Many different events take place in the evenings at the Berchtesgaden Salt Mine. Dinner in the Salt Mine, for example, is not just a treat for the palate. The extraordinary environment of the Salt Mine gives the dinner event a mystical atmosphere, making it an experience you'll never forget.
