I have rarely seen anything this extraordinary. You start by going down a 'spiral' staircase that is square in cross-section and which seems infinite. There follows a 2 km walk though tunnels that frequently widen into display areas, chapels, ponds, son et lumiere, caverns. It is one wonder after another, difficult to encapsulate in words or pictures. The return to the surface is, mercifully, by a fast lift. Salt carvings, salt chandeliers, Salt statues. Goethe apparently called it a 'wonder of the world' in the 1790s - I have to agree with him. Our trip was marred slightly by a guide who thought that his role was to tell jokes rather than introduce the mine - but the sheer profusion and scale of the exhibits shone through his frail ego. I overheard other guides who were excellent. It is absolutely fascinating - please go! I went as part of a group - a category not included below in trip Advisor's list, so I have had to tick 'solo'.
