Deep down underneath the “Salzberg” mountain a secret world awaits your discovery. For many years, only the salt miners in Berchtesgaden were allowed to enter the complex tunnel system. Today, part of the mine – which has been in operation for over 500 years now – is open to all fans of adventure who wish to get to know the place where the famous Bad Reichenhall brand salt originates. Salt is an indispensable part of our lives.
MESO was commissioned by 3deluxe to further elaborate on the sketched exhibits in terms of concept and interaction design. MESO was also responsible for programming and setup on site. The exhibition is open daily since 2007
