Falu Mine, Falun

(4.5/5 based on 260+ reviews on the web)
Visit Falu Mine and learn how one of the biggest workshops in Swedish history used to work, both above and below the ground. For 12 centuries the enormous mine was one of Europe's biggest suppliers of copper. Above ground you can admire the gigantic pit, tour the mining facilities, see the museum collection that tells the story of the mine, and take part in various activities. The underground tour to a depth greater than 60 m (200 ft) allows you to get a clear idea of what working in these conditions must have been like. Wear clothes that you don't mind getting dirty and dress warmly, because the temperature at this depth is often just a fraction above freezing. Above and underground tours are charged separately and it's advisable to make reservations ahead of time. Using our international travel planner, Falun attractions like Falu Mine can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • In winter the museum and some other buildings closed, but there remains enough about to see. The store, restaurent and coffee shop are open. Please note the possibilities with the guide in the English language is my to go and whether they. An email is also the most practical, Tourist Infi gsf not the right information

  • We visited the mine in low season which meant that all the parts were not open. It did nothing when we got exactly what we expected and then some. Mine tour led by the wizard, Olle took us through our history on a great and educational way. Olle was very knowledgeable and interested in what was noticed and gave us increased interest and we learned lots of new things and got us a lot of anecdotes Organized around the mining area and easy to spend many hours. An important part of the world heritage site

  • Highly recommend the tour by the museum guide. Very interesting inside. It was worth the trip for us. Our kids liked it too. Town is small and much else to do.
  • Amazing cultural heritage. I really wish the tour would be deeper though, because when they tell you the cave goes 3 times deeper then the furthest you are going it just leaves you wanting more.
  • Great for both young and old. Great mine tour and a great museum
  • Wonderful mine. I suggest you the tour inside the mine.
  • Great museum for young and old! Very interactive, pedagogical and fun.
