The New Salt Manufacture Experience how gourmet salt is made at the Hallein salt mine
The long mining and salt-processing tradition on the Dürrnberg, which came to an abrupt end in 1989 with the closure of the Hallein saltworks, is being brought back to life. Visitors to the Salt Manufacture, which was built in 2019, are now able to experience salt production at Salzwelten Hallein first-hand.
BAD ISCHLER Salzzart
Brand-new and one-of-a-kind: Our BAD ISCHLER Salzzart is made from natural Alpine brine and hand-scooped by our master salt maker on the Dürrnberg.
The naturally pure Alpine brine flows out of the centuries-old salt mine directly to the new Salt Manufacture where it is processed. Utilizing traditional techniques of salt extraction, soft flakes of salt are produced. Mild in flavor and melting gently on the palate, this gourmet salt is an ideal way to refine salty as well as sweet dishes. Our Austrian answer to Fleur de Sel!
