Located some 20 minutes from Salzburg, Dürrnberg salt mine is one of central Europe's oldest mines. Although it was closed in 1977, the mine is still open to visitors. The tour lasts about an hour and a half and begins with a slide down to the depths of the mine - an experience in itself! The tour is extremely informative and explains all about the history of salt mining. A train brings visitors back to the surface. There is also a small museum.
