Mønsted Limestone Mines

The world's largest lime mine

Visit the world's largest limestone mine with more than 60 km of tunnels. Walk the 2 km of illuminated paths beside rippling streams and underground lakes. In the lime mill you can see the old stoves that burned the lime and in the former manager's residence there is a museum. The mine train runs from the 15th of May to the 15th of August.

Bring warm clothing as the temperature in the caves is a constant 8C.

Mønsted Limestone mines are suitable for wheelchair users.
