    Hallstatt and Altausee Salt Mine

    90 Reviews
    959m from downtown
    "This city is a must-go place! Salt caves add a lot of fun to this place. After taking the cable car up the mountain, I have to walk for about 20 minutes, but it is all flat, and the scenery is super beautiful! The slide in the cave is the key, but the process is not boring at all, the tour guide is very humorous!"
    Highlights: There is a salt cave halfway up the mountain behind the town. It has a history of more than 7,000 years. It is the oldest salt mine in the world and one of the must-see attractions in Hall Tate. Visitors can take the cable car to go there. After arriving at the cable car station, they can see a restaurant. After climbing up for about 15 minutes, they will see the salt pit. After that, they have to change into "miners' clothes" and take a small train to enter the cave. After getting off the bus, I walked into a twisty, deep and strange passage. Since the mine was deep underground, it was very interesting to slide down a slide. In the mine, there is a movie room to introduce the history of the salt pit and the mining process, so that visitors can deepen their understanding of the salt cave; there is also an underground salt lake, the level is like a mirror, in addition, tourists can also visit the original salt mine workers' dormitory "Salt Miners". Attractions such as the House of Excavated Clothes and tools used to mine rock salt are displayed.

    33 Reviews
    71m from downtown
    "Undoubtedly, this Protestant church is the most famous landmark of Hallstatt, the most conspicuous church in postcard photos, but because it is a Christian church, its interior decoration is still simple and unpretentious, and it is not in line with its external reputation."
    Highlights: Built in 1785, the church is a local landmark with great historical and artistic significance. Although the church style is not as majestic, it gives people a sense of tranquility. The church was built by the lake, and its unique geographical advantage gives it a lot of extra points, and the mountains behind it are natural, especially its bell tower spire has become a part of Hallstatt's iconic scenery. .
