Dürrnberg Things to Do

There are several salt mines in the vicinity of Salzburg, whence the name which translates to "salt city". The city wealth came from these mines, some of which are still active today. The Bad Dürrnberg mine was active as far as 2500 years ago, by the Celtic inhabitants of the area.
The mine is a perfect place for both adults and kids, which enjoy dressing up in miners clothes, riding the little train and of course slide down in the wooden slides.
On the "A10 Tauernautobahn" motorway take the exit at Hallein (exit 16), cross the first two roundabouts straight ahead, at the third take the lane to the right towards Salzburg. At the second traffic light-right on the bridge-turn right. Exit the following roundabout to the left, cross another bridge and keep to the right always in direction of Salzburg. Immediately after the flyover turn right and follow the mountain road for about 1.5 km, then turn right to the Salzwelten parking lot.Related to:
