Welcome to the world’s largest limestone mine. Deep down awaits you a completely unique experience for both children and adults – your dog is also welcome to join. Take a few hours out of your calendar and look forward to a ride on the train, to explore the caves, see the bats, horror and wild stories. The temperature is 8°C all year round, so remember warm clothes – even in the summer. Are you hungry for more you can visit the lime plant and finish the day with a little refreshment in the café.
METERS TO TRAVEL BY TRAIN
BATS FLY IN AND OUT OF THE MINE
STEPS BEFORE YOU REACH THE BOTTOM
Do you also love to learn with all of your senses? Look forward to a train ride, a hike down the mines and a time travel in the old limestone mill. Here you may touch everything if you like.
Think bats are a little dangerous, exciting and mysterious? 5 different species hibernate in Mønsted Kalkgruber. In the spring they leave the mine for the summer and fly all around Jutland.
Mønsted Kalkgruber is much more than a huge hole in the ground. Here is beautiful scenery, grassland and cozy corners for the perfect picnic. If you have a dog feel free to bring it along.
In Mønsted we look out for our bats. We register all bats flying in and out of the caves all the year. See the statistics here.
I Mønsted passer vi rigtig godt på vores fredede flagermus. Faktisk holder vi så meget øje med dem, at vi kan vise dig hvor mange, der flyver ind og ud af gruberne. Det kan du se lige her…
