An exciting experience for the whole family.


The largest salt mine in Austria will enchant the visitor
through the pure presence of salt. The only mine where the gangways lead through pure salt stone. Via
two long miners’ slides, the visitors delve deep into the enchanted world down under.

During the Second World War, the tunnels of this mine were used to store invaluable works of art, including masterpieces by Michelangelo, Dürer, Rubens and Vermeer. A prize-winning multimedia exhibition documents the courage and commitment of the miners to save these art treasures in April 1945.

Come and visit the original site of the film "Monuments men" with George Clooney! Special guided tours on this exciting subject will be available from summer 2014.
