Choose from a morning or afternoon experience, and travel along the snaking Deutsche Alpenstrasse through the picturesque Bavarian Alps.

Return to daylight for a short tour of Berchtesgaden before your return to Salzburg.

  • All entrance fees included
  • Family friendly
Choose from two start times and make your way to the meeting point in central Salzburg. Leave the city by coach and travel along the Deutsche Alpenstrasse, a magnificent road that cuts through the Bavarian Alps. Admire the backdrop of alpine scenery as you pass alongside the banks of Königsee River, and then stop at Obersalzberg where Berchtesgaden Salt Mines await.

Head inside the centuries-old mine, and get changed into a traditional miner’s uniform, which is provided as you enter. Hear some of the history of the site, and learn about the salt mining traditions in Berchtesgaden that date back to the 12th century.

Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before you, descend to the grottos of the mines with your guide and explore the subterranean salt world by foot and mini-train. Watch a short film to learn about the origins of the salt deposits, and finish your underground trip on a high note with a raft cruise around the lake.

Return back to ground level, hand back your miner’s uniform and travel onward to the town of Berchtesgaden. Take a short tour of the town before your return to central Salzburg.

    Luciano our tour guide was very knowledgeable and really went out of his way to give us a good tour. He was amazing and made the experience, the salt mines were ok and would be fun for children but i am a bit claustrophobic so it was hard for me in some ways. However I did the slides, the boat and the funicular back up to the top so it wasnt that bad! The journey there was wonderful and very scenic so thankyou! also credit to the staff at the booth .. very helpful and friendly!
