We visited the salt mines on our first day in Austria and it was the most fun out of the entire trip! If I could give the tour 6 stars, I would.

I would allow three hours as you need to arrive before the scheduled time and then the tour is about 2.5 hours and then some time for the gift shop. Reservations are recommended to make sure you get the time you want
