Mønsted Kalkgruber is located at Mønsted, south of Hjarbæk Fjord and west of Viborg. The limestone pits are caves in a limestone layer close to the surface, where lime has been quarried for many centuries, for example to produce mortar for building churches and monasteries. Mønsted Limestone Mines is the world's largest limestone mine and an endless labyrinth of mine galleries. Try the mine train in summer or see how many bats you can spot.
