Bavarian Mountains



Something very different awaits you when you decide to visit the Salt Mines! Travel past the hunting castle of Hellbrunn, we pass the Austrian-Bavarian border.

Along the Konigseeache Valley, through the Bavarian mountains, past romantic farmhouses and the ruins of Obersalzberg - Hitler's mountain retreat - we arrive at the highlight of our journey, the 450 year old Salt Mines.

Wearing traditional miner's clothes, you enter the mines and hear the historical as well as legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before you, descend into the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. With a raft ride on the salt lake and a miniture train ride, we end our romantic and educational adventure.

Afterwards you have the chance to regain your strength with some Bavarian specialities during a stop in Berchtesgaden. Tour highlights include a view of Hitler's 'Eagles Nest', a magnificent view across the snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian Alps and dressing up in miner's clothes!
