Tourist Route

Tourist Route starts at the Daniłowicz Shaft and takes you through all the most iconic chambers of this UNESCO World Heritage Site. You’ll see massive man made salt caves, underground lakes, chapels and chambers carved in salt and lots of unique sculptures and art. You’ll be accompanied by a professional guide who will tell you all about the history of the mine, as well as look after you during your stay underground.

Some of the most iconic chambers on the Tourist Route include: the Chapel of St. Kinga, Copernicus Chamber, Kunegunda Traverse and the Michałowice Chamber.

The ticket fee also includes entrance to the Krakow Salt Works Museum.

Miners Route

Would you like to experience a day in the life of a miner? The Miners’ Route takes place at the Regis Shaft where you’ll be moving across some of the oldest preserved chambers of the Salt Mine in Krakow. An expert guide will give you tasks related to salt extraction that will make you admire the people who worked here ages past. You’ll reach 135 meters below ground, making for an experience full of fun and adrenaline!

It’s important to note that this route is not available for children under the age of 10. 

How to get tickets to the Wieliczka Salt Mine

The Wieliczka Salt Mine allows its customers to purchase entrance tickets in multiple places. Here are your best options for booking your underground excursion:

At the meeting point

There is a ticket book right next to the Daniłowicz Shaft building. However, depending on the time of year, the waiting times may be quite long.

Online Wieliczka trip tickets

Wieliczka Salt Mine Museum has an easy to use ticket purchasing panel on their website. However, it’s up to you to shop up at the meeting point at a specific time, and even besides that, you won’t always be guaranteed to get skip-the-line entrance. Though, you are going to skip the queue to the ticket office.
