Quite unusual for our conditions, but it is quite common in the north – a thousand-year-old monument stands freely accessible in the fields – and this even has a small exhibition inside. It is located in the western part of the island of Møn and whoever wants to see it must squat …

Exposure

And finally, the golden nail of this several-meter walk – a replica of the funeral situation that was discovered in the mound.
