Salzburg: Berchtesgaden Salt Mines and Underground Boat Ride

The tour will take you from Salzburg straight to the entrance of the salt mines of Berchtesgaden. There, you will receive overalls to protect your clothing before climbing aboard the mine railway and traveling down into the shafts. An expert guide will lead you through the maze of branching tunnels and explain the fascinating history of Alpine salt-mining. The adventure continues with a slide, taking you yet deeper into the ground – an exciting experience for young and old! Finally, right at the bottom of the mine, climb aboard a raft to journey across the extraordinary underground salt lake. Before heading back to Salzburg, discover Berchtesgaden and its breathtaking scenery.

This tour was excellent! Our guide, Leopold was informative and entertaining. The sights were beautiful and the salt mine was very interesting. Even our children enjoyed the tour.

Der Ausflug im Salzbergwerk war sehr schön und ist definitiv etwas für Familien. Leider war die Organisation des Busunternehmens nicht so gut, da die Haltestelle falsch angezeigt wird (ist links an der nächsten Straßenkreuzung) und der Ausflug mit einem anderen Ausflug zusammengepackt wurde und somit unangekündigt länger dauerte. Die eingebaute Lunchpause hätten wir nicht benötigt, da wir danach etwas anderes geplant hatten und dies sich dadurch leider verzögert hat.

Our trip to the salt mines was awesome. Our guide, Walter, was excellent. He gave us a lot of facts and history on Salzburg as well as the Berchtesgaden salt mine and surrounding area.

I booked this excursion for my boyfriends birthday, as we were spending a long weekend in salzburg. I didn't know what to expect, but it went above and beyond our expectations. My boyfriend absolutely loved it and our tour guide Walter was super friendly and amusing. Thankyou for a memorable trip.

This tour was a great change from the usual sightseeing fare. The ride into the mountain was fun, the slide was literally a scream, and the boat ride light show was entertaining. I was also intrigued by the information about salt mining through out history.

Αρχικά ήταν πολύ δύσκολο να βρεις το σημείο συνάντησης, αφου αλλά έλεγε το voucher και αλλού ήταν τελικά! Ήταν στην απέναντι πλευρά του δρόμου σε ένα συνεργαζόμενο πρακτορείο. Αν δεν ρωταγάμε θα χάναμε την εκδρομή! Σαν εκδρομή ειναι πολύ ακριβή για αυτό που προσφέρει. Η βόλτα στο αλατορυχειο είναι ωραία και διασκεδαστική αλλά πολύ μικρής διάρκειας!

Fahrt und Besichtigung Salzbergwerk Berchtsgaden war prima. Verbesserungsfähig ist die richtige Benennung des Abfahrtsortes in Salzburg. Die Fahrt wurde von der Firma PANORAMA Tours durchgeführt. Der Bus fuhr in Salzburg von der Hubert-Sattler-Gasse am Busterminal um 14:00 Uhr ab. Treffpunkt lt. Angabe von Get Your Guide war aber Mirabellplatz 2. Bitte künftig ändern :)

It was an audio guide tour and the audio devices didn’t work half time. And the entire tour was so rushed. Not at all what I was expecting.

Diese Tour hat anders als angegeben auf englisch stattgefunden! Der Tourleiter wirkte außerdem nicht glücklich mit seinem Job. Keine klaren Anweisungen, dafür am eigenen Handy daddelnd. Ausdrückliche Warnung vor dieser Tour! Das Salzbergwerk lohnt sich immer wieder, das aber lieber in Eigenregie oder mit einem anderen Anbieter besuchen!

Wasn't very happy with the tour guide. The ride was also quite boring.

The 45 minute drive to the salt mine was very scenic and the guide on the bus was informative. The tour itself was ok but a little pricey for what you get.

Our van driver to Salt Mine was amazing!! He showed us spectacular views and told us lots about history as we travelled up into mountains for Salt Mine tour. Views were breathtaking! Actual Salt Mine tour was ok... underground boat ride is more like floating across a dark pond for 4 mins. Mine tour guide didnt speak English & was very disengaged so we had to use recorded devices that didnt always play correctly. Kids loved the two slides in mine and "train ride" in and out of mine. Overall, entire excursions was worthwhile but best part was views to/from.

Great tour get to see quite a bit in a short amount of time. Take the back road so you are able to see the scenic view but it is a windy road so beware if you have travel sickness. A stop in Berchtesgaden was a nice stop where you can have coffee and dessert or walk the cute town.

We had a great day out on the salt mine tour thanks to our guide for the day Leo. His enthusiasm for the tour and for the local area was great. He gave us the history of the city and all the landmarks as we drove out towards the mountains and then gave us loads of information about the Eagles nest and all the surrounding area switching seamlessly between German and English due to our mixed group. The tour of the mines was great and we jumped all of the queue due to arriving with this tour which was great. Arriving back in Salzburg Leo gave us some great recommendations for restaurants and things to see with our remaining time in the city which was really helpful. I would definitely recommend the tour, was a great way to see the area surrounding Salzburg and the guide for the day really did make the trip.

This was a great experience! Carina (not sure of the spelling) was awesome. Very knowledgeable and was a perfect tour guide. My only complaint is the directions to the meet up point were off. I was frustrated trying to find the meet up point and after asking several of the vendors, they finally pointed me in the right direction. The short boat was amazing on the clear salt water. The slide was a blast for my kids (age 6 and 2). Would highly recommend!
