A rainy day in Salzburg saw us want to take a trek out to the salt mine tour in Berchtesgaden.
We’re we ever so pleased with our choice! It’s super fun (slide is awesome!), informative and overall affordable.
A bit of advice - if you...More
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
I wasn't much interested in visiting the salt mines but it came as a part of our tour to Eagle's Nest. But it was actually a fun experience. You sit on a funny little train to go deep into the mountain. You ride a little...More
Loved it ! What a brilliant day at the mines - we had so much fun !!! The guide was helpful and the staff gave us excellent advice and assistance. Really recommend going if you are going anywhere nearby!
We are a family of 5 with 3 kids ages 15, 12, and 10. We had a blast. Who knew that salt could be so interesting? You are driven into the mine on a small coaster. There are 2 places where you get to slide...More
We liked the tour but I don't think it's worth what you pay for, on top of the entrance fee, we had to pay another 3.50 Euro for parking, just for the amount of time we've been at the tour. Even though it's really informative...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 thought it equally informative with a similar train ride into the mountain, slides down the levels and a lake, plus it is a working mine.
PS Sorry for the delay - just back (2 hours ago) from Salou Spain.

The guided tour underground takes about 1 hour. Please plan about 1,5 to 2 hours including buying your ticket, getting changed, welcome and returning the miners' clothes. Book the tickets online first to avoid the line is a good way to save time and all you have to do is to arrive a bit earlier and enjoy.
