That's the first thing I thought when it came our turn to go down the first of two wooden slides. No, didn't happen. I'm glad I took the tour because I almost backed out. The place looked too Disney-esque for me. If it's a rainy...More

It is quite a lot packed in a very reasonably priced tour. You are first taken by a mine train into the mines and you are given mine overalls to wear giving you the entire feel. Audio recordings and awesome 3d graphics give great insights...More

Loved this place. I was bit apprehensive bringing young children into the salt mines but this place was very accommodating and very family friendly, they were also very knowledgeable. Definitely would recommend this for families with children of all ages. Except infants, because they're slides,...More

As the salt mines are in Germany, not in Austria, I think there is no public transportation there. Would recommend the alternative: a local travel agency (Panorama Tours for example).

How safe are the slides for my 79 year old parents?

Response from Szabolcs S | Reviewed this property |
Probably they will not go for it. They are pretty safe, as long as you can keep your legs up, but they have stairs for those who, for some reason, don't want to go on the slides. No worries, they will still enjoy the tour :)
