Create an itinerary including Falu Gruva
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.

  • They took us off the tour because my 4 years old laughed and walked too slowly in the tour guide's opinion. She didn't convey her message nicely and even didn't refund us. We'll never be back! Awful.....  more

  • This was an excellent experience. I never visited a mine before. The mine was represented in state what is it used to look like 200 years ago. You really get a sense of how mining used to work and the tour guide was great. Make sure you have proper shoes on as sometimes it’s could to be slippery.
  • Exceptional experience! The guided tour is a must-have and also have a stroll in the museum. The history of the mine and how it plays a part in the history of Sweden is noteworthy.
