Experience the mine

A historic treasury

Not far from the border to Dalarna, in northern Västmanland, you’ll find Sala and Sala Silvermine. Where route 56 (from Västerås) meets route 70 (from Avesta & Dalarna or Uppsala and Enköping), at the roundabout by rest stop Evelund, follow the signs towards Sala Silvermine. Welcome! 



We offer you a couple of different opportunities to experience Sala Silvermine. You can either go down in the mine on a guided tour down to the 60-meter lever or if you want to fully experience the mine, The big mine tour is the clear choice. Welcome to Sala Silvermine!

Experience the mine on your own

Take part of a tour down into the mountain where the journey goes through sooty and sloping passages, past deep shafts and majestic rock rooms. Your guide will lead you down into the mine via winding stairs. Along the way, you stop at well-chosen places and learn more about Sala Silvergruva’s rich and exciting history. The tour is about kings and queens, skilled miners and hard-working labourers, who with simple tools broke away the rock piece by piece in search of glittering silver ore.
