“Very interesting minevisit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

The visit to the coppermine was very interested. We had an experienced guide with our group who could tell nice stories. You can borrow raincoats, helmets, rubber boots.

“Interesting journey back in the industrial history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

A guided tour of the Falu Koppargruva is realy worthwhile, in order to understand the history, the wealth of Sweden of that time, and the hard work the miners had. You visit the mine in about one hour and it is really worthwhile !

“tour underground worthwhile”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

If you have been in pretty large caves in France and Belgium, you probably think this is not worth visiting. But it's the story about the miners who worked there that makes it worthwhile. And 'experiencing' their working conditions.

“interstesting copper mine”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

The guided tour of this mine could not be bettered, my only gripe would be that its quite pricey 210 sek for an all in ticket and I think the mine tour far exceeded the museum / and "train trip" in terms of enjoyment . howvere it did fill the whole day and its difficult to find too many attractions that can offer that for around £20

“Copper Mine From Inside”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

Great tour! Very interesting and well worth the time. Lots of stairs to climb and wet in places. Visited are given raincoats. Totally save but impossible to the disabled. Fascinating stories that go with the place. Copper was/is widely used for paint in Sweden. That is why so many houses are red. Color is referred to as 'Falun Red.' Copper also used in highway pavements this area.
