Salty mines & a sweet view in Hallstatt, Austria
Afterwards, we headed inside the museum for tickets for the salt mine tour. About 50 of us were provided onesies then moved into a waiting area. Adorable and functional, the inside of the mine is nearly a constant 40 degrees Fahrenheit so they provided the needed warmth and kept us from getting dirty.
- In the 1800’s a pick made out of a stag horn was discovered, dating back to the Neolithic Age thus making the mine 7,000 years old. (!!!)
- Home of the world’s oldest pipeline, constructed over 400 years ago with 13,000 hallowed out trees.
- The oldest salt mine in the world.
