The thought banks of Møn

The picturesque island of Møn, known for its breathtaking chalk cliffs and tranquil landscapes, is home to a number of special places known as “Tænkebænke” or thought benches. These carefully selected spots invite locals and visitors alike to pause for a moment and take in the natural beauty of the surroundings.

A place of peace and reflection

The benches on Møn are more than just simple seats. They symbolize a space for tranquillity and personal reflection. At these specially selected locations, which often offer breathtaking views of the Baltic Sea, the chalk cliffs of Møns Klint or the idyllic landscape of the island, visitors can enjoy a moment of silence and be inspired by nature.

The story behind the thought banks

The idea of the thought benches arose from the desire to preserve the unique nature of Møn and at the same time create a framework for personal reflection and appreciation of this beauty. Each bench has its own history and was donated by the community or individuals who have a deep connection to the respective place.
