Visit Falu Gruva 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. Our Falun sightseeing planner makes visiting Falu Gruva and other Falun attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Vilken historia man fick ta del av. Ett museum som passar alla åldrar. Synd arr de guide turerna ner i gruvan var så sällan. Vi kom strax före 11 och då hade de en guidad tur kl 10:30 på svenska.

We arrived just before 11 and then they had a guided tour at 10:30 in Swedish. Next at 12 in English and next at 14 in Swedish. My Tipps is to check online before if you want a guided tour in Swedish.
Great experience and very good guided tour!
Well worth a visit. Took the tour above ground, good guide and worth you're time. Would recommend lunch at geshworndergården while you're here, good value on weekdays a little more pricey on weekends
