the world's biggest limestone mine Exploring


In Mønsted we have the world’s largest limestone mines and we are very proud of them. Inside the mines there are a total of 60 kilometers of mines, 2 kilometers of which are lit up. However, it is also allowed to explore the times that are not lit up – if you dare. Remember a flashlight!

If you are a school or a larger group that is going to Mønsted Kalkgruber, there is a discount.

Mønsted limestone mines are located in a Natura 2000 area, which means that the nature and the animals here are protected.

Some of the footage from “Absalon’s Secret” and “Emma and Santa Claus” are recorded in Mønsted limestone mine.
