I just had a look on the German Wikipedia, regarding the Salzach. Where they are using different figures. They say that the Salzach only form about 59km of the Austrian-German border and that the Salach was only used until the 18th century for transporting Salt. I will try to find out which figures are the right ones. elostio 1st May 14:24 GMT+1:00

Useful addition: source of the salt[edit]

Since salt was such an important commodity, it would be nice to know where the salt came from that was shipped down the "Salt" river (as this page currently (2009-Oct-20) says is the case). Was the salt mined, shipped over the Alps, or something else? I think such information might not rightly belong in this article about the Salzach, but perhaps in its own article, with links as appropriate (including a link in article about the city Salzburg).
