Götene’s “mini Grand Canyon”

400 million years of history

The grand quarry (Stora Stenbrottet) on Kinnekulle is a 40-metre-deep former limestone quarry. The lower layers of limestone date back 400 million years, and the hues of the stone layers and the beautiful setting have made the quarry one of the most popular places to visit on Kinnekulle.


The pool is stocked with rainbow trout. Fishing permits can be purchased from Hällekis båtklubb (in Swedish!)
