Welcome to the largest limestone cave in the world. Please set aside at least 2 hours for the visit. During the whole year the temperature stays at 8°C, a good reason for bringing warm clothes. The caves are a perfect place for a visit during a rainy day or in a heat wave.
In the Café and in the limestone factory you will find toilets both for men, women and for disabled people.

Normally you walk in the caves on your own, but you also have the option of a guided tour to hear about the caves, their history and the bats. The tour has a duration of about 1 hour and must be booked in advance.

The caves are operated by the independant entity Mønsted Kalkgruber. The board consists of representatives from Viborg Municipal Council and several trade organisations.

The exhibition of bats, Geology and the cultural history of limestone opened July 1, 2006.
