The lime plant


The limestone mill was built in 1874, but in 1933 was extensively remodeled for the neat sum of DKK 27,000. Lime was burnt in the limestone mill until 1980.


In 2003 and 2004, the limestone mill underwent extensive restoration to safeguard the mill against decay. It stands today as an important memorial to the early Danish lime industry.


The lime works today as a museum, where, among other things, films about limestone quarrying and where you can find an exhibition about bats, as well as keep track of the number of bats in the pits at the bat counter.

Even though it is many years since the lime plant stopped the production, there is dust of fine limestone throughout the plant.
It is therefore hard to avoid dust on the clothes.
