    What to Expect
    Your tour will begin at Mirabellplatz in central Salzburg, where you’ll join up with your guide and hop aboard your coach. Enjoy a scenic drive  through the Bavarian mountains before arriving in Obersalzberg.

    Then slip into miners’ attire and descend into the grottos on a slide! After a thrilling ride down, explore the underground world, learning about the mines' fascinating, 450-year-old history. Top off your adventure with a raft sail on the salt lake and a train ride.

    After ascending back to the surface of the earth, visit the charming town of Berchtesgaden to purchase a snack or plate of apple strudel. Your tour will conclude at its original departure point in Salzburg.
