Nice organized tour although we had a hard time finding the correct parking area. It is worth a visit, takes a bit of time, but it's interesting to learn about the salt mining. The slides inside the mine are awesome, simple, but just unique, been...More

Hi Shawn, It's a close call between the 2 mines and would likely depend on your location/itinerary. IMHO based purely on a mine visit, Berchtesgaden would get the vote. The wife said it was quicker with less walking. I... More
