The salt mine itself is very good. The tour with 800 steps and a length of 3 km is carried out quickly and competently, but those who are not physically fit have to struggle with a small drawback. Huge drawback, if you get the wrong elevator, you have to walk 1km underground to the elevator to get out in the middle of the city.
