Everyone has salt on the table and seasons their food with it, but where exactly does the Bad Reichenhaller AlpenSalz come from? It was about 250 million years ago, when there was still a primeval sea, where today we find the villages of Bad Reichenhall and Berchtesgaden. Due to the evaporation of the sea, salts crystallised on the ground. Nowadays, the salt is deep in the mountains because of the unfolding of the mountains, today's Alps. To this day, the salt in Bad Reichenhall exists in its pure and original form.
The company Bad Reichenhaller offers numerous products around salt. The product range includes classic salt, with and without fluoride and folic acid, alpine saline, and spice salts. Alpine saline contains neither additives nor adherents and is obtained from natural brine, which is salt dissolved in water. In addition, there are spray salt, the natural brine filled in spray bottles, and mills with salt and selected herbs and spices.
In Bad Reichenhall is the old salt works, a museum of the brand Bad Reichenhaller. There you will learn interesting facts about the history, production and the salt itself. On site, there is also a salt shop with the products of the company.
