Møns Klint is an outstanding place.
It’s beautiful, dramatic and not without danger.
Weather changes are guilty of many landslides over the years.
Some of the latest landslides:
Sommerspiret, disappeared in 1988.
In 1994, a part of Dronningestolen slipped down to the sea. A French tourist was killed.
A huge landslide happened in 2007, when up to 500,000 cubic meters of chalk, clay and soil together with approx. 100 beech trees slipped 300 meters into the Baltic Sea.
