    • Tour 3A - Excursion through the Bavarian Alps with a visit to the Saltmines

      Something very different awaits you, should you decide to visit the Saltmines. Past the hunting castle Hellbrunn we cross the Austrian-Bavarian border. Along the Königseeache valley, through the Bavarian mountains, past romantic farmhouses and the ruins of Obersalzberg - Hitler's former mountain retreat - we arrive at the highlight of the journey, the 500-year-old Saltmines.

      Wearing the traditional miners' clothing, you enter the mines and hear the historical as well as the legendary tales of the fascinating underground world. Using the same slides as hundreds of miners before you, you go down a 100-foot-long slide into the grottos, the magical world beneath the surface of the earth. With a raft ride on the salt lake and a miniature 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. Highlights: View of Hitler's 'Eagle's Nest'. Magnificent views across the snowcapped peaks of the Bavarian mountains. Dress up in miners' clothes. Riding on original mining waggons, 100-foot-slide to the grottos, a film showing the origin of the salt deposits. Boat ride on the salt lake. Stop in Berchtesgaden.
