Reviews

An incredible place. These mines are a masterpiece, literally have to see it with your own eyes to believe the craftsmanship in these mines almost everything that you see in photos is made of salt. It is mind blowing!

This place is absolutely stunning, breathless. Beautiful and amazing to know that everything you see there is salt. You will be able to go and see the history and heritage of one of most beautiful places in Poland. Highly recommended. ITS Poland tour with brine graduation tower was perfect. I already feel healthier. The tour guide Anna was hilarious as well and done a great job.

Questions and answers

Could you let me know how much walking and how many steps are involved in the mine? Is there a lift down and back up? Our clients are mixed ability when it comes to walking so I want to make sure its accessible for all.

The tour in the mine usually takes about 1.5-2 h walking on route and then some free time at the end of the tour at a restaurant and leisure mine level. The distance to cover is 3.5 km. During the whole route there are 800 steps (at the beginning there are 380 to get to the lower level of the mine). It is possible to omit the steps by taking the lift down (additional payment). If you take the lift, there will be still about 300 steps to cover with the longest one step distance of 180 steps.

If you believe it is too hard your group can take the lift up and down the mine but then they will only visit Underground Museum of Salt and not the ordinary tourist route. It is flat and takes more or less the same amount of time as a tourist route but they won't see St. Kinga's Chapel which is the biggest attraction of Wieliczka visible on most Wieliczka photos.
