Thorsberg quarry is the only location where limestone is still quarried on Kinnekulle.

It has been in use since 1890, and it has been a family business for several generations. Limestone from the quarry is used to make items such as flooring, windowsills and stonework for historical renovations. Around 12,000 tons of stone are quarried here each year but only about 2000 tons is of sufficiently high quality for use as stonework, while the rest is crushed for aggregate.

NOTE! This is a working stone quarry, and is not open to the public. If you have a special interest in visiting, please contact Thorsberg quarry directly to arrange a visit!
