Preserved farmhouses, original handicrafts and traditional amenities will make your excursion to the open-air museum unforgettable.
At the Salzwelten in Hallein or in Hallstaat visitors can trace the origins and history of salt mining in our region. While there, take a gondola ride across the mystical salt lake and forge through the deep passages of a former salt mine.
