Salt Mines

Salt belongs on the table, whether in its natural form or with added herbs. A visit to these mines, which stretch over 50 km through tunnels, shafts and gigantic caves, starts off on a train and then continues on foot. An experience not to be missed!

For centuries the ownership of salt mines meant wealth and power. The salt deposits at Bex, discovered in the 15th century, are still mined today. The salt mines are accessible to visitors, a museum depicts the mining of salt from 1684 to the present.
