HALLSTATT & SALTMINE
After your pickup in the city of Salzburg we are going to have a drive through the countryside of Salzburg where you will see the breathtaking nature in a perfect symphony of water, mountains and nature. We will pass important small towns and towns that show the wealth and joy of former times. In Hallstatt you will take a funicular to the entrance of the saltmines which contain the oldest staircase of the world. After that you will visit and stroll through the village of Hallstatt where you can see this old miner’s town with the only active bone house in Austria and you can enjoy some typically food and drink in this world cultural heritage area. (Entries and food are not included in the tour price).
Within this tour we will give you more inside stories and backgrounds about Hallstatt and the saltmines and about the celtic culture and their life style.
The tour includes the drive from Salzburg in a comfortable van to the lake district area, where you will see the lake of Fuschl, lake of Wolfgang and from there to the village of Hallstatt (saltmines and village break depending on the season and weather). In the afternoon hours we return through the area of Gosau and Abtenau to either the waterfall of Golling, or the celtic village reconstruction at the Dürrnberg mountain (depending of weather and time) and back to the town of Salzburg.
Entry fees for the salt mines or other activities are not included.
