Fanefjord, one of the most beautiful churches in Denmark.
White beaches and emerald Baltic sea
Between the North and Baltic seas, hundreds of islands, Denmark is a country of water, sea and watercolors. The tones are soft, the green of the countryside is omnipresent, the light is shaving and golden on some summer evenings.
Møn & Sud Sjæland
Only attached to the European continent by a few dozen kilometers of border, Denmark is as flat as maritime country. The south of Sjaelland with its high cliffs (Møns Klint, Stevns Klint) that overlook the Baltic Sea is characterized by open and green landscapes, white sandy beaches and numerous bridges that connect the south of Sjaelland to the islands of Falster, Lolland and Møn.
At almost 128 meters above the sea level, the chalk cliffs of the Møn island have been overlooking the Baltic seas for 70 million years and are predominantly made of prehistoric shells. Along a 7 km line, the movement of glaciers from the north pushed the seabed to the southwest. Millions of cubic meters of crustacean remnants have been repelled, forming folds and bumps emerging from the surface. The cliffs appeared at the end of the last ice age, about 11000 years ago.
Cliffs of Møn
The south of Sjælland is rich in small towns and harbors. Many cities were very well guarded medieval centers, Stege is the capital of the island of Møn, it’s an old town with partly preserved fortifications.
Dunes, stretches of grass on the sand, large funds. Behind the dunes there is a lot of heather flower and coniferous forests that hide small holiday homes.
Nyord & Ulvshale
Nyord is a small 5 square km island , covered largely by salty pastures that are used in the summer but flooded in winter. The island was only connected with a bridge in 1968, until then a small boat allowed the islanders to regain Møn. It helped to preserve its natural environment which is now the natural reserve of Ulvshale.
This former Air Force base became a nature reserve in 1996, the preserved control tower allows an extensive view of the Avnø fjord. These near salty, sandy beaches and wetlands have a particularly rare flora and fauna in a landscape where the earth, the sea and the sky join.
