Vötter's Oldtimer Museum

> 360° panorama of the museum
The core of the 400 year old Steiner farm house was not used for several years and was in danger of dereliction. The building was then bought by the Kaprun municipal council and listed as a site of historical interest. Its locations on the Kirchbichl is very special, as other historic strucutres surround the church.

Hallein Salt Mine
Fun, adventure and mystical moments await you in this ancient realm of “White Gold”. The galleries of the salt mine in the Dürrnberg near Hallein were the source of Salzburg’s wealth. Visitors hop aboard the mine train for a comfortable, fun-filled ride into the center of the mountain, where two long miners’ slides take them down to a subterranean salt lake, site of a new multi-media show that transports them into a magical world of light and sound. They follow in the footsteps of the Ancient Celts, who had been mining salt here since 400 B.C., and discover the mysterious world of the miners themselves who, with their bare hands, dug kilometers-long labyrinths deep into the mountain. Today’s visitors, big and small, can look forward to adventure, fascinating insights and all kinds of fun during the tour. And it doesn’t matter at all whether it is hot or rainy outside.

- The Celtic Museum in Hallein, as well as
- Silent Night Museum in Hallein
can all be visited free-of-charge with your Salt-Mine Ticket!
Mozart Town Salzburg
It is hard to outplay Salzburg: next to innumerable museums, the birthplace of Mozart and Fortress Hohensalzburg are special treats, indeed. It is also well-worth paying a visit to Stiegl's Brauwelt, which is a brewery, and to go to the 'Tiergarten'.Auerspergstraße 6 5020 Salzburg Tel. 0043662 88987-0 www.salzburg.info
