“Bex Salt Mines a unique attraction”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

It was an informative and interesting visit to learn of how salt is harvested from the sediments. The 1km ride on a trolley train I
Thru the tight tunnel was very exciting. Worth a visit as it is such a unique attraction

“Great excursion”
Reviewed 13 April 2013

Kids loved it and I found it very interesting. Not at all claustrophobic. Very informative. Some hands-on parts for the kids, aged 7 to 11.

“A must destination with the family or a business outing!”
Reviewed 5 April 2013

We had a wonderful 2 hour tour on a rainy day (temperatures are even throughout the year), in the Bex salt mines. It's fun for all as you have a brief walk and introduction and then take a tiny train. This is NOT for basketball players or who get's scared in a closet. Our guide was so impressive that we all walked out (teenagers as well), ranting and raving of her knowledge and kindness.

For companies they have an impressive conference room build into the mountain 1.5 km's in and 600m under.

We will be back and hope you enjoy this place as much as we did.

“Fun family outing”
Reviewed 9 March 2013

Took guided tour and enjoyed learning about salt mining in Switzerland. Check for times of tours in certain languages. Can book tours on-line and pay in advance to avoid lines.
