The experience before the experience
Fascinating, exciting, thrilling! - Your journey into the Hallstatt period begins with the ascent to the Hallstatt high valley on the panoramic Salzberg cable car. There, from the free-floating skywalk, you risk a view of historic Hallstatt 350 meters below and of the World Heritage region. Immediately afterwards, you will be immersed in an epoch of mankind far in the past.
The path through the ages
Your path through the ages crosses the Hallstatt high valley, where approx. 1,500 graves with valuable burial objects have been uncovered to date. You will encounter a walk-through display tomb, which, together with audio guide information, will give you fascinating access to 7,000 years of Hallstatt culture and salt production.
Meet and greet with the man in the salt
From the miner's house, you walk through the mysterious tunnels into the mighty heart of the salt mountain. Here you will learn a lot about the legendary "Man in the Salt", who was found almost completely preserved almost 300 years ago. Like the miners once did, you will glide down two miners' slides into the depths, where a mystical salt lake awaits you.
Movie Time in the "Bronze Age Cinema
In the Bronze Age Cinema you will meet some great stars. For example, the oldest wooden staircase in Europe. An absolute highlight, which offers a perfect stage for the cinema. Or on Udlo and his clan. Around the hard everyday life in the Bronze Age, also revolves the film, which you will see in 4K quality more than 400 meters underground. A small mine train will take you back above ground.
Expedition into prehistory
If you want to delve even deeper into the mysterious history of salt production and Hallstatt culture, then book the prehistoric expedition. Equipped with a protective suit and helmet, you will explore the site of the man in the salt and many other treasures from the past with an archaeologist from the Natural History Museum in Vienna. The guided tour lasts about 4 hours and takes place every Tuesday and Thursday at 13:00 in July and August. Do not forget to register!
