“WHITE GOLD” – A FUNNY AND EXCITING JOURNEY BACK IN HISTORY

This tour takes you to one of the world's oldest salt mines accessible for visitors at Dürrnberg mountain. The “white gold” mined there played a crucial role in the history of Salzburg and far beyond. It provided almost limitless riches for the prince archbishops to fulfil their urbanistic dreams which are manifested until present days in Salzburg’s baroque magnificence.

Donning a traditional miner’s cloths, using a small miner’s train and sliding down smoothly polished wooden slides you will go down level by level and enter not only the mysteries of a world far inside the mountain. You will also travel back in time for ages. A miner will guide you vividly explaining about the history as well as telling exciting legendary tales like the one of the “Man in the Salt”. A highlight will be the raft trip across the subterranean salt lake.

With fun and excitement you will discover the history of the “white gold” hidden for millions of years.

After the salt mines we will cross the Austrian border to Bavaria (Germany). While driving on the “Alpenstraße” (Panoramic Road) through the countryside you can have wonderful views of the Bavarian Alps and Eagle's Nest (Kehlsteinhaus, 6017 ft). From there we take the way back through “Berchtesgadnerland” to Salzburg.
