Mønsted Kalkgruber is closed for the 2022 season!
We look forward to seeing you in 2023.

WELCOME TO THE LARGEST
LIMESTONE
MINE IN
THE WORLD

AN UNIQUE EXPERIENCE FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS

Explore the fascinating, impressive and perhaps a little scary mines that miners have made by hand. In the mines, the temperature is 8 ° C all year round, so remember warm clothes – even if its warm and the sun is shining.

 

You can explore a total of 4 km. of mines of which the 2 km. have light. You are welcome to go exploring on your own outside the trails with light, however, it is at your own risk and it is a good idea to bring a flashlight. Your dog is also very welcome, but it must be kept on a leash during the entire visit.

 

Other things to do in Mønsted Kalkgruber:

 

  • KALKVÆRKET (the old plant), a listed building where you can get an insight into how the lime has been processed and the people who worked at the plant.
  • EXHIBITION ABOUT THE BATS that overwinter in the pits from August until April, where they fly out and may visit your garden.
  • THE NATURE in the area, which is NATURA 2000 and therefore is specially protected
  • THE MUSEUM where you can get an insight into Mønsted Kalkgruber’s history, and not least the people who have worked here and created the place.
  • Our BAT PLAYGROUND, where children can play on figures of the various bats that overwinter in the pits.
