Deep below the Salzberg mountain is a working salt mine.
It's been in operation since the 1500's. (I was educated to the fact that salt mines always 'employed' slaves, hence the reference to all of us working stiffs...)
I dressed pretty sharp for this dinner. Which was a waste of time. Because they make you put on miner's suits!
Then, you hop on a little train that takes you down into the salt mine..
From there, we sailed across an underground lake in the near pitch dark.
Next up! We use an ancient wooden slide to reach the lowest level. In groups of five, or six, you sit on these polished wooden slats and slide - very fast - to the bottom! No big accidents, in spite of our best efforts while goofing off...
(My photos of the train and slide didn't come out so I snitched some pics from the salt mine website... :)
When you get to the depths of the salt mine... voila! A dining room!
Where we gnoshed on all kinds of gourmet goodies...
