Tour to Hallstatt /visiting Salt Mine/ Salzkammergut
It’s an idyllic lakeside town, with a history which is reaching in the bygone. Salt mines are discovered here for more then 4000 years,and for its healing power it’s also called „ white gold”.Salt was a product about 230 million years ago of the warm lagunes of the prehistoric Tethys Lake. About 50 million years ago there were gigantic shifts in the continental plates and the result was the formation of salt deposits in the alpine region.
There are records of settlers in Hallstatt as early as the Neolithic Period. The salt mining industry has been in operation since 1300 BC, and continues today. A brine-like substance is extracted from the rocks. This is piped to the nearby salt works, where salt crystals are finally extracted. It sounds like a straight forward process. There have been so many implications in the development of the salt industry such as forestry, manufacturing of tools, mining techniques, transportation , and of course provisions for local people themselves.
It’s arrivable with a not too long and pleasent journey by car. The town and it’s surroundings gives a truly experiance just like in fairytales. And if we are there, visiting salt mine is a must!
