Salt Museum

The Only Completely Preserved Brine Pumping Station

The building complex was once a pumping station on the brine pipeline from Reichenhall to Rosenheim, working from 1810 until 1958. It is the only one of its kind that is still preserved. After it had served various purposes, it was bought and repaired by the village of Grassau. At the museum, there are temporary themed exhibitions every year.

Salt – White Gold

Nowadays, it is difficult to comprehend the former importance of salt. For many centuries it was a valuable preservative due to the lack of electricity and refrigeration. Owners of salt works earned a lot of money. Even wars were waged because of salt.
