Description

Åmdals Verk is a village and a former copper mine in the Tokke municipality in Telemark, Norway, located 8 km south of the municipality center of Dalen. The mines were operational between 1691 and 1945, during which 8000 tons of copper were extracted. A branch of the West Telemark Museum chronicles the history of the mines, and some of the tunnels are open to the public on guided tours during the summer season.
