Alte Saline (Old Saltworks) in Bad Reichenhall

Pay a visit to the most beautiful saltworks in the world!
Known as the "most beautiful saltworks in the world" even as far back as 1846, the Alte Saline is one of Bavaria's most significant industrial monuments. The Alte Saline museum will bring you closer than ever before to the long-standing tradition of Bad Reichenhall branded salt, the saltworks and to "white gold". In addition, the salt shop offers insight into all products available from the famous brand.

For a long time, salt was a coveted luxury that stood for power and wealth. A treasure, which Earth only makes available in certain places… such as Bad Reichenhall. The Alte Saline is a splendid symbol of this wealth and is the historic home of 'Bad Reichenhaller', Germany's most famous table salt brand.
The brand stands for pure, natural products gained from original natural brine from the Alps. This salt-rich spring water has provided the basis for Bad Reichenhall's "white gold" for centuries.
