We were well looked after. We did not make the English tour but the audio guide was excellent and the tour guide gave us a time to be back for the train to the surface and we followed the audio tour at our own pace.

This is an exciting tour of the ancient salt mine. History is well explained and the train ride to get inside makes one wonder the difficult job of mining salt for our consumption. There is small bar inside.

Hi, sorry for the delay! From the train station you can ask for a Taxi (+41 24 471 17 17 or free call 0800 85 84 84) it cost around CHF 22.00. To walk it take about 1h20min.
