Visit Faxe Limestone Quarry

In the middle of Stevns is Faxe Limestone Quarry – a piece of history of Denmark, which has had great importance millions of years ago – and certainly well worth a visit.

63 million years ago the Faxe Limestone Quarry was covered by water, and inhabited by huge sharks, crocodiles and other exotic animals. You can still find vestiges of this past in the form of fossils and imprints, which is guaranteed to be an experience for the whole family. Geomuseum Faxe organizes guided fossil hunts, but you are also more than welcome to walk around on your own. If you find something on your trip, Geomuseum Faxe will gladly examine your finds, so you know exactly what it is you are bringing home. The Geomuseet shows and tells much more about the quarry and its history – you find it right on the edge of the cliffs!
