The special evening event

Enjoy with all your

Immerse yourself in the fascinating world of salt. Our miners take you on a unique journey deep into the mountain. After a guided tour, the Berchtesgaden salt mine opens its doors for an exclusive event. 650 metres underground, a special dinner is waiting for you. A culinary miners' buffet and live music await you - a colourful mix for all the senses.


An extraordinary dinner experience

This is what awaits you at the dinner in the Berchtesgaden salt mine.

A warm welcome! A glass of sparkling wine and sandwiches to welcome the guests.

Of course, the typical overalls don't just add to the atmosphere. They also serve to prevent you from damaging your clothes when sliding and contribute to your own safety.
Hold on tight: a ride with the mine railway 650 metres deep into the Salt Mountain.
On an informative and eventful guided tour through the mine, you will learn everything about salt mining and the life of the miners then and now. In addition to two 40-metre-long miners' slides, you can also expect a spectacular ride over the underground Mirror Lake. Our tunnel map will give you a first impression of what else awaits you underground.

Afterwards, a delicious miners' buffet awaits you at the Kaiser Franz Sink Work. The loving table decorations and the many small details turn the large sink work into a mystical dining room.

Menu plan:

Fresh seasonal salads

Mozzarella with tomato & basil


Smoked salmon with dill-mustard dip


Ham variations with melon boats


Cream of carrot and coconut soup


Pork tenderloin in herb coating with pepper cream sauce


Fried chicken fillet with mushroom cream sauce


Vegetable lasagna


Spinach cheese dumplings with roasted onions & parmesan, served with a choice of parsley potatoes, fragrant rice & colourful vegetables


Bavarian cream, dark chocolate mousse, red fruit jelly with vanilla sauce

There's also a musical delight. A music group will provide the background music for the evening.
Can't get enough of sliding? There is plenty of time for this after the meal. A slide photo as a souvenir of the evening is also included in the price of the dinner.
During the subsequent rock salt tapping, you can take home a 250-million-year-old stone as a souvenir.
On the ride back with the mine train, a gin tasting awaits you in addition to a show blasting. For it is here in the depths of the salt mountain that the unique Miner's Gin from the Grassl Gentian Distillery matures. Storage at 12 degrees and constant humidity ensures its very special flavour.

This is what awaits you at the dinner in the Berchtesgaden salt mine.
