We spent the day in Hallstadt and at the salt mine on an hour tour. By the time the tour was over, we were glad that we hadn’t gone on the four hour “Prehistoric Tour”! We got to the mine via a difficult hike up the mountain well marked with snippets about the history of the area and the mine. (Most take the venicular up the hill and miss all that great history.)
Take note of the funny outfits with the reinforced bottoms for the slides in the salt mine. The miners used these slides to get to work… we used them for fun.
