This salt mine is something so unique in the world that you should not miss it. 7,000 years of salt mining: Actually inconceivable but yet possible to experience now due to venturesome pioneers and the work of present-day professionals.
In kilometres of tunnels and chambers a fascinating world displays itself: The places where miners once did their heavy labour. Ancient relics like pine wood torches which miners held in their hands thousands of years ago. The oldest staircase in the world. A salt lake midmost the mine. A Time Spiral covering 7,000 years of mining and the history of the probably most important find: The Mann im Salz (man in the salt), an obviously by salt well-preserved corpse of a man discovered in 1734 by miners.
