The salt mines were kind of interesting because previously it had not occurred to me that salt was actually mined ( in spite of the saying and the seven dwarves.) I guess I thought it came from the sea or something...never mind...

Warning to all claustrophobics..don't bother visiting.. the lift down into the mine (red cage as shown in photo) is tiny - built for 5 but takes 10, very very old and rickety and very very dark. It didn't help that our visit was a mere couple of weeks after the Beaconsfield mine drama in Tassie which no doubt heightened our feelings of trepidation.

Some stuff made from carved salt...the chandelier is pretty amazing.
