Themed tour ”Burial grounds“
The year is 1846, when the salt mine manager Johann Georg Ramsauer discovered the Hallstatt burial ground on the Salzberg high valley. This find was crucial for the naming of a whole cultural epoch, the Hallstatt period (800 - 400 BC). To this day, excavations of the archaeologists of the Natural History Museum in Vienna still take place there. We may be lucky enough to observe archaeologists doing their work during the 1 ½ hour tour, gazing over their shoulders and admiring the many precious grave goods.
