LEARN ABOUT THE LIMESTONE MINE

Do you also love to learn with your whole body? 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.

COME AND MEET THE PROTECTED BATS IN THE LIMESTONE MINES

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.

ENJOY LIFE AND EACH OTHER IN BEAUTIFUL SURROUNDINGS

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.

DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY BATS ARE HOME RIGHT NOW?

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.

VED DU HVOR MANGE FLAGERMUS, DER ER HJEMME LIGE NU?

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…
