Salt mines: Berchtesgaden or Hallein?? going from Untersberg

Hi,

Does any one know the difference between the Salt Mine Berchtesgaden and the Salt mine in Hallein???

Which guarantees more fun and adventure? Are the wood slides still working for turists in both mines?

Before getting to the salt mine, we will go from Salzburg to Untersberg first. Is there any direct connection to the Hallein salt mine?

If you could answer these questions, it would be a great help.

Thank you for your reply!

There are still the wood slides in the mine at Hallein. There are 2 - there were 7 when I first did the tour in '70. I don't know why the change, but the tour isstill fun.

We took the Hallein tour last summer and enjoyed it--it's a bit hokey in spots, but they have to keep the children in the groups entertained. The slides were fun (as were people's reactions to them). I haven't been on the Berchtesgaden salt mine tour.

There are still two slides at the Berchtesgaden mines. We were there last month.
