One would not imagine that such a place exists in the flat flat Denmark - but there it is. A hundreds of million years old calcium mine now converted into a sightseeing spot is worth a visit with or without children.

Great to view though we couldn't see any bats as it wasn't the season. There was a multimedia presentation inside the caves which is a must if you manage to be around the time... More
