If you don’t come to Mön with your own car, the island’s capital Stege is the best starting point for exploring the island. Mön has a bus service. The bus is waiting for you near the tourist office, on the north side of the drawbridge, which also leads directly to the city center.
From here, Stege is divided in two by its long Storegarde pedestrian path, which leads from the harbor along the towering, Gothic roof of the town church and ends at the medieval Molletorte gates. Steges’ name is derived from “Strike”, whereby wooden stakes were rammed into an inlet as an additional defense against intruders.

The harbor lock in Stege
The Stege Harbor Castle was built in 1910 and was the unofficial landmark of the harbor for many years. The building consisted of two waiting rooms. One for them 1. and one for that 2nd Class.
The building also served as a port office and the harbor master’s residence. When the school in Stege was rebuilt in 1935, lessons took place here.
The lower part of the harbor lock later served as an apartment, in 1961 the tower was dismantled and has been in the museum in Stege ever since. In 1965 the port lock was then torn down.
The Dampers “Stege” and “Codan” drove a fixed route between Stege and Kalvehave. You can see the model of the harbor lock opposite the tourist information office.
