Photographer's Note

In former times only privileged dignitaries were allowed to visit Berchtesgaden's salt mines, in operation since 1517. Today, this fascinating underground world can be visited by all thanks to continuous guided tours. Dressed in miner's clothing, the visitor enjoys rides on a train through quite narrow tunnels, a funicular, a raft and down slides, fun for young and old.

The Image shows the patterns of salt and minerals in the rocks. You can literally lick the salt of the walls...
