This big boulder of Svantestenen is found way out in the forest of Store Klinteskov on eastern Møn.

Location: Aborrebjerg Møns Klint.
GPS: 54.980064,12.537972

Size: 2,3 metres high, 3 metres wide and 3,5 meters long.

Meaning of the name: Stone of Svante (Giant of Brocken)

Material: Granite

Origin: ?

Legend: Two sisters - probatly giant-women - fell out. The one built Magleby Church; the other lived on Rygen, and from there she threw Svantestenen that fell on Arborrebjerg (Perch Mountain).
When the first Christian church was built on Møn - in the city now called Magleby - became a sorceress in Skåne ever so furious that she threw a rock toward the church. But it was in vain, for the stone did not hit the church but fell behind at the cliff on the hill called Arborrebjerg, and there is yet to see.
A troll on Rygen would prevent Magleby church's building, but the stone did not reach, it fell on top of Arborrebjerg. It is said to be so deep in the ground as above ground.
Magleby Church was built by two sisters, and there were two towers of the church. The witch hit one tower, so it fell, and the stone flew back to church forest.

The giant Svantese on Brocken in Gernamy has thrown the stone of the Baltic Sea after Magleby Church tall towers, but by God's protection stone fly half mil back.


I only visited this boulder long time ago, and I nicked a photo from museum-online.dk
