Visited here on holiday in August. Got stung firt because they wanted money to take photos, so i bought the badge. Then when they seend my camera i had to pay more money for a proffesional photo pass, then when i got my tripod out they said i had to pay like 20, so i left there and picked it up at the end! Greedy people!

This mine still is working ( i think) i passed a few mining looking people on the way. Accesss was down like a million steps, which i tried to take a photo of but it wouldnt work as people were constantly moving.

Theres some amazing architecture down there, when you take into consideration 99% of it is carved out of salt!

Photos may be slightly shaky, handheld on manual underground with no tripod doesnt work.

Looks good for hand helds, the robbing bar stuards.
