Salt Mine Hallstatt

The mine in Hallstatt has 7,000 years of history to discover. The “Man in Salt” accompanies the visitors on their journey through time at the Salzwelten Hallstatt.

Since 2002, the “Man in Salt” is the central theme of the re-designed Salzwelten mines. In 1734, a corpse preserved in salt was discovered right in a salt deposit, a contemporary chronicle describing it as “pressed flat and tightly grown into the rock. Clothing and tools were quite strange but well preserved.”

The entrance to the Salt Mine is high above the town itself and the first part of you journey is the cable car ride. Form there it is a 15 minute walk to the main entrance of the Salt Mine where you are fitted out with protective clothing and then you can start your journey into the mine. This is a great attraction for the whole family. Unfortunately, the mine is not suitable for wheelchairs or pushchairs.

Open daily from the end of May to the end of October.
