We booked the tickets online, which was super simple and fast (would recommend this, because otherwise you might have to wait an hour or two) and when we were not able to make it in time, due to bad traffic, they were able to book...More
I’ve always disliked doing super touristy things like the salt mine tour. However, I was pleasantly surprised this time and I recommend it to couples and families, even with little kids. A few thoughts:
- It’s cold in the mine so I recommend wearing a...More
At the beginning we dressed up into mining overalls and sat on benches of an old mining train. We traveled through a narrow tunnel by a train and set off in a hall where a guide showed us how salt ore was formed underground. It...More
My wife wasn't so sure initially about going, but found it to be worth her while. Very fascinating tour of an active mine, one that has been in operation for over 500 years!
You start with putting on coveralls (provided), then a train ride into...More
It's fun, even if you're not traveling with kids! It was interesting to learn about how salt is extracted from the mountain, as well as fun to go down the slides! Just the right amount of time and entertainment. We appreciated the English Audio Guides.
This is a great place to visit. Really interesting and great fun as you go round on mini trains, go down a couple of slides, sail around a mirror lake whilst dressed up in special overalls. I now have a much greater appreciation of that...More
You will get a audio guided tour which will guide you in audio of your choice. A mini log type train takes you deep inside a tunnel right into the mine under ground.

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.
