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.

Allow a full day for this - the underground mine tour was the highlight but also good interactive museum and lots of surface buildings more »

Every 30 minutes there is an English-language tour. The guide tells about the history and working conditions. Very impressive and instructive. There is also a museum at and around the quarry you can visit several historical buildings, from outside and inside. With a train you can tour around the grounds. Food and drinks can make you look as well. In short, a complete getaway.

Tolle Untertage-Führung mit vielen interessanten Infos und Geschichten. Das dazugehörige Museum ist interaktiv gestaltet und ist dadurch sehr kurzweilig. Auf dem weitläufigen Gelände gibt es auch sons... more »Great underground guide with lots of interesting information and stories. The accompanying Museum is interactive and is thus very entertaining. On the sprawling grounds there are to explore much anyway. The only downside: parking costs extra. That should these prices really be included!
Best thing Ive Done in a long time😍We Got a private guide who gave us a tour, he had a lot or knowledge and we had a lot of questions! Truly a very different and unique experience a true must if you are around. It's so big and so old! It's heaven for history 😜

Interesting place full of history. A UNESCO world heritage site really worth to visit. The view outside the mine is spectacular
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.
Beautiful place with a grand mining history. Important Swedish mine and city documented for over 1000 years.
