Note for visitors: Please read
As mountain railways in Austria are considered public transport and FFP2 masks are compulsory on buses and trains, this also applies to the funicular railway up the Salzberg in Hallstatt. Please keep this in mind during your visit to the Hallstatt Salzwelten. In addition, the operators of the exhibition mine and the Skywalk recommend that you wear an appropriate mask in closed areas such as the shops, the valley and mountain stations and the “Knappenhaus “ (miners' house). Thank you for your understanding. Your editorial team
