Salt has been mined from these mines for well over a thousand years, until they were closed just recently due to a drop in salt prices. The tour offers a rare glimpse into the history of salt mining in the Salzburg region of Austria. The mine itself extends well into German territory; markers tell the mine visitors where the border is located.
