Super interesting as you traverse downward into the mine. It feels as if you are in Disneyland come to life. Be aware that it does get a bit dirty in the shoes and the temperature inside is about 40 degrees Celsius.

Falun isn't very big. You can get there from almost anywhere in 20 minutes. If you take a hostel, Kopparstugans Bed & Breakfast seems closest. Falu Fängelse - an old jail- is for more adventurous visitors.
