The secret behind BAD ISCHLER Salzzart

From natural brine to the finest gourmet salt

We’ve brought together the thousand-year-old technique of salt boiling with today’s wealth of experience to perfect the process of harvesting the finest Austrian gourmet salt. The purest natural brine flows out of the Austrian Alps from the centuries-old tunnels of the Dürrnberg salt mine in the federal state of Salzburg straight to our newly built demonstration and production facility in Hallein. Here, the brine is converted into the very finest gourmet salt. Under the watchful eye of our master salt-panner, this natural Alpine brine is carefully heated. Boiling leads to the production of tiny salt crystals on the surface of the brine, which join together to form pyramid-shaped flakes. These are then gently skimmed off by hand, dried and packed with lovingly care. This process results in the finest BAD ISCHLER Salzzart – the Austrian gourmet salt for exquisite moments of pleasure.

Experience gourmet salt production for yourself

Salt Manufacture in Hallein

The long-standing tradition of salt mining and salt working on the Dürrnberg mountain in Hallein came to an abrupt end in 1989 with the closure of the Hallein saltworks. But it has since been brought back to life! The Salt Manufacture built in 2019 offers the opportunity to experience salt production close up in the Salzwelten Hallein attraction. Here, the master salt-panner is happy for visitors to watch him at his work. He explains the process of salt boiling on the spot and invites questions from the audience.
