Go for a walk in the town of Bogø. It is a good idea to start at the church. You cannot help noticing the various sailors’ graves of the churchyard – indeed, this is the sailors’ island. Enter the church - just like most of the churches of the island of Møn – it is open most of the time. The church is small, but built according to the classical, Danish way of building churches. Make a drawing of the ground plan and compare it to the other churches you will pass on your way.
Continue your walk through the town – it is a lovely walk to the port of Bogø and back again. On your way there is a lot of things to study. Try for instance to spot all the different types of schools of Bogø – a real school island: Cavalry school, navigation school, public school, boarding school and continuation school. You might also notice all the different types of hedges and fences represented in Bogø.
If you are the curious type, take the ferry boat to Stubbekøbing and visit the town. The ferry boats are becoming a rare means of transport in Denmark, so take the chance while the ferry is still there. In the old days we had a saying that water connects, land separates. This was in the times of the ferry boats as a common way of bringing people from one of the many different Danish islands to another.
Originally Bogø offered every possible essential service to its inhabitants – just like each and every other local community in Denmark – quite another world to live in compared to that of today.
Bogø Mill is a wind mill and consequently placed on top of the hill where the wind really blows. The mill has been totally restored, and it is exciting to visit it in order to see how the wind power was used originally to transform corn into flour. The tourist office of Møn can inform you where to pick up the key of the mill. It is interesting to notice how wood is used for almost all the constructions and to find out how the wind is transformed into turning millstones able to grind corn to flour. It is not that easy.
