What To Expect
Something very different awaits you when you visit the Salt Mines. Past the hunting castle Hellbrunn, we cross the Austrian-Bavarian border. Along the Königseeache valley, through the Bavarian mountains and past romantic farmhouses and the ruins of Obersalzberg, Hitler's former mountain retreat, we arrive at the highlight of the journey - the 450-year-old Salt mines.
Wearing the traditional miners' clothing, we will enter the mines and hear the historical as well as the legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before you, you go down a 100-foot-long slide into the grottoes, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. With a raft ride on the salt lake and a miniature train ride, we end our romantic and educational adventure.
Afterward, you have the chance to regain your strength with some Bavarian specialties during a stop in Berchtesgaden.
