    Møn Things to Do

    Standing on top of the Cliff of Møn - 128 m above the sea - you are at the same time on top of the Danish chalk foundation. Denmark is entirely built on a platform of chalk, and therefore the Cliff of Møn bears witness of the enormous forces that have created the country and the unique flora and fauna of the area.

  • Land slides

    Møn Warnings and Dangers

    Yes, they do happen, particularly after a wet season. The last major slide was in winter 2007 (yep!) when a whole chunk of cliff, trees and all, fell down on the beach and into the water - so far out that a whole new little peninsula was created here at Store Taler.
