Go to Visit Møn

Places you must see

 

Møns Klint is one of the most magnificent nature experiences you can experience in Denmark.

The huge chalk cliffs are pushed up in their angular forms of large ice masses in the ice ages, and in the chalk layers one finds petrified, prehistoric marine animals. Therefore, you can often find petrified sea urchins and various petrified seafood on the beach below the cliff.

At Møns Klint you will find Geocenter Møn, where a lot of activities are arranged outside and inside. You can, for example, come on guided tours and look for 70 million year old fossils, climb and hover on cable cars in the trees, drive mountain biking in the wild nature and much else outside.

Within the geocenter you can experience how Møn has been created, as well as other exhibitions and activities. You should visit the 3D cinema with "terrifying" films about dinosaur tours and other prehistoric animals.

Next to Møns Klint you will find the great Liselund Park, which in 1792 was laid out as a love gift from the then county governor of the island to his distinguished Lisa, whom the park is named for.

In the park, Liselund Gammel Slot was originally built, a fine thatched building closely enclosed by forest and adjacent to a small lake. The old "castle" still exists in the park.

Liselund Ny Slot is from 1887 and is built on a hilltop overlooking both the sea and the beautiful park and today houses a cozy castle hotel with a café and restaurant.

At Møn there are over 100 preserved burial mounds and giant graves from the Stone Age. Just north of the holiday home Bo-Her is Kong Asgers Høj, which is Denmark's largest and most beautiful burial grave. 100 meters away is Sprove-dyssen. Just south of Bo-Her is Klekkendehøj, which is divided into a hill with terraces - and is a twin grave with 2 entrances. You will find brochures in the summer house.

Churches at Møn offer frescoes and rococo. Visiting the small village churches on Møn is a true pleasure walk in studies of the medieval frescoes.
