On Monday, August 15th, 2016, we traveled to Hallstatt, a town famous for its salt deposits. A rack railway took us up the hill to the entrance of the old salt mine. A long tunnel led us inside the mine and then we used a slide to decend even deeper down into the mountain.
There we saw a fascinating light show inside the cave, the oldest wooden staircase and learned about the history of the “white gold”.
After lunch we continued our trip to EGGER particle board manufacturing where we had a guided tour and could experience the process of producing wood products. Afterwards EGGER provided us a typical Austrian dinner with Wiener Schnitzel.
Thank you for having us!
