  • Many people have heard that the salt cave experience may have been very boring, and that it was actually an educational idea and that the process was very strong, and I really recommend it, and the town has been posting salt mines's propaganda is hard not to attract Ah, has previously been in Pittsburgh to participate in a experience in the sea, this time to come here and play with friends ~ but pay attention to the winter is not open.

  • Guided tour in English and German. KB: 3 hours. Not to be missed in the Tower, the view from the pists with different degrees. The mine a lot of interactive projection.
