SALZWELTEN SALZBURG: www.salzwelten.at
The salt from the Dürrnberg mountain is what gave the city and the countryside of Salzburg its name. It was the "white gold" of the Church Princes and helped finance the baroque old town of Salzburg.
The salt lake in the Salzwelten Salzburg/Bad Dürrnberg has a history that has been passed down over thousands of years.
The entire length of the Dürrnberg tunnel is over 15 kilometres long. The salt mines were shut down in 1989 since the ratio between the mining costs and the attainable market price no longer enabled economic operation.
After a short hike past a historic miner's slide ("Klaus-Rolle") and a mining scene we cross the Bavarian border. And then the first great adventure begins: We ride down a 27 meter long miner's slide further into the depths of the mountain and into the depths of time. A great experience for the whole family.
