Bavarian Mountains & Salt Mines Tour

Bavarian Mountains & Salt Mines Tour

Something very different awaits you at the Salt Mines. Wearing traditional miners’ clothing, you enter the mines and hear the historical and legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before you, you go down a 100-foot-long slide into the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. With a raft ride on the salt lake and a miniature train ride we end our romantic and educational adventure. Duration: 4 hours.

Eagles Nest

This 4.5 hour trip crosses the Austrian-Bavarian border along the Königsee River Valley, through the Bavarian mountains and Obersalzberg. A bus and elevator will bring us to the Eagle’s Nest. The adventurous bus ride along the steep rock walls and deep gorges takes about 20 minutes. During the journey you will have a splendid view up to the ‘Hoher Goel’ and across the snow-capped peaks of the Bavarian mountains.

Must See & Do

The City

The joke 'if it's baroque, don't fix it' is a perfect maxim for Salzburg; the tranquil Old Town burrowed in below steep hills looks as much as it did when Mozart lived here 250 years ago. Its cobbled streets are overshadowed by ornate 17th-century buildings, which are in turn dominated by the medieval Hohensalzburg fortress from high above. Across the fast-flowing Salzach River rests the baroque Schloss Mirabell, surrounded by gorgeous manicured gardens.

FOODS TO TRY:

Salzburg Nockerl
A light and fluffy dessert, similar to meringue, meant to imitate the shape of the mountainous region around Salzburg.

HIDDEN GEM:

Saint Sebastian’s Cemetery
This 15th century cemetery is home to some big celebrities- Mozart’s wife and father, and Wolf Dietrich, whose salt mines made Salzburg rich. But it’s the creep factor that is most interesting. Skulls abound - including winged skulls, skulls with snakes emerging from their eye sockets, skulls on which angels prop themselves, skulls with hourglasses, skulls with a pick and axe for miner’s graves, and skulls that hold holy water.

Must Sees

  1. Hohensalzburg Fortress A fortress atop Festungsberg hill, one of the largest medieval castles in Europe.
  2. Mirabell Palace A UNESCO heritage listed palace and gardens, where scenes from The Sound of Music were filmed.
  3. Hellbrunn Palace A baroque villa of the Salzburg Prince-Archbishops with beautiful grounds and trick fountains.
  4. Hangar #7 Hangar belonging to the owner of Red Bull with a collection of 25 historical airplanes, helicopters and Formula One racing cars.
  5. The Salzburger Dom 17th century Baroque cathedral of Salzburg.
