Falun Mine above ground
The area around Falun Mine is full of life all year around.
Walking path around the Great Pit is a popular walking path with beautiful views.
Many old buildings are still standing reminding of old times. Some of the historical buildings are open during summer time. Have a look at Linslageriet, Vaschet and Creuts Wheel House. In some places there are large piles of mine waste. North and northwest of the mine there are traces of copper smelting in the huge slag warp.
