The Saftstationen (sugar beet factory), built in 1884 in the west of the island of Møn, is one of the last industrial landmarks of its kind. Where sugar beet was once processed into sweet juice and pumped further onto the main sugar factory, you can now spend your holidays, celebrate festivals and experience culture.
On the edge of the village of Damme, not far from the coast and the beaches, in the middle of a park-like garden, stands the imposing complex of light-coloured clinker brick, consisting of two administrative buildings, fragments of the former beet chambers and the delivery ramp. When sugar production flourished on Møn, three sugar beet factories were built on the island to shorten the delivery route for the farmers. The building in Damme is the only one that has been preserved. In 2019, the building was completely restored by its owners – with the intention of preserving its typical details.

Each of the two holiday apartments is suitable for two people and consists of one large room with a detached built-in bathroom and kitchen. The kitchen faces the courtyard, while the bedroom on the other side looks out onto the garden. The interior design, both high-quality and sleek, mixes light natural tones with a few coloured accents and finds its own interpretation of Scandinavian style. Many elements such as the kitchen, the dining table or the outdoor lighting were designed especially for the place, which further emphasises the personal atmosphere of the apartments as well as the entire property. Outside the high glass doors is the gravelled courtyard, further awaythe fields merge into the varied coastal landscape leading to the sea.

The Saftstationen also features a concert hall, which is regularly used for musical and literary events, but is also ideal for family celebrations.

What to do

Hiking and cycling tours, a short walk away is the medieval church of Fanefjord, decorated with paintings by the famous Elmelunde Master, a visit to Grønsalen, the longest burial mound in Denmark, excursions to the spectacular Møns Klint, the largest chalk cliff in Europe, to the small harbour in Hårbølle or to the Fanefjord Forest, where you can find amber and fossils on the nearby beach. Copenhagen is a 1,5 hour drive by car.
