The salt mines were worked from 1517, bringing prosperity to the region. Dressed in miner's overalls, you will visit the site which includes scientific exhibits, multimedia displays and fun activities on board a small train that takes you through the galleries. A light show takes place in the "cathedral of salt". Afterwards, you are invited to cross the underground lake on a raft, before finishing in the "laboratory".
