The cave is a former limestone mine in the form of a multitude of labyrinthine aisles a few tens of meters underground. Tykarsgrottan is located at Tykarp next to Ignaberga outside Hässleholm. Tykarpsgrottan is approximately 20,000 m² but it is only about half that can be walked in. As early as the 1100s they began to break the limestone in Tykarp. The mine which is known as Tykarpsgrottan was in operation from mid-1700s to 1888. Several movie recordings have been made in the cave. Several bat species spends the winter in it. www.tykarpsgrottan.net
