Located at the foot of the Vaudois Alps, the Bex salt mines receive many visitors each year seeking a unique Swiss experience, ideal for families. In order to improve the visit, the salt mines are under renovations and will open the 24th of March 2018.
The Bex Salt Mines are a vast labyrinth of galleries, shafts, stairs and halls stretching over more than 50 km. A tour of this fascinating underground world allows visitors to discover the most spectacular and characteristic elements of the various salt extraction techniques used in the Alps since 1684. After a film presentation, the miners’ train takes visitors to the heart of the salty mountain.
On the day of Sainte Barbe, the miners' patron saint, which is celebrated on December 5, a TrekkMines invites visitors to explore this labyrinth.
An exceptional journey to the land of white gold, which allows visitors to understand the important role salt has played as a source of income since Antiquity.
