Montreux Off The Beaten Path: 15 reviews and 41 photos

 
 

We were staying at Montreux and decided to go for a drive and visit the Bex Saltmines.
We had never been into a Saltmine. The drive to the Salt mines from Montreux was through a very scenic valley, with enormous Mountain's on either side. We found our way to the mines, by following a narrow, bitumen road.
There was a large carpark, so parking wasn't a problem
We went inside to the gift shop, this is where we paid our admission to the Mines. Inside the gift shop was all types of Salt produced from this Mine.
We found out that it is best to book a tour, as one tour had just begun, and another wasn't for quite a while, and we couldn't wait that long. We opted for joining the group that had already begun a tour, we missed a little, but not a lot, at least not the main part, which was the Mines.

ADMISSION TO THE MINES IN 2011....Adult....19chf....

We had the FREE MONTRUEX CARD which gave us HALF PRICE ADMISSION
