Invest in Moens

With Moens Klint as an international tourist attraction and the upcoming Fehmarn Belt Fixed Link, Moens Feriepark is sure to be an attractive holiday destination for both Danish and international visitors alike.

Attractive holiday destination

The unique nature around Moens Klint attracts thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. The rare diversity of animal and plant species and the uniquely varied landscapes on both Moen itself and on the surrounding islands of Bogø, Farø and Nyord make the location an attractive holiday destination for both Danish and international holidaymakers alike.

Even during the current coronavirus pandemic, with many Danes opting to take their holidays closer to home, there remains a huge demand for overnight accommodation on Moen – and the enthusiasm of Danes to explore their own county is sure not to waiver in the coming years considering the huge risks involved in travel abroad.

Huge potential
for tourism on Møn

All over Denmark, there were 56 million overnight stays in 2019, with the number of international tourists increasing in particular. 

With a total of 28.9 international overnight stays, 2019 saw the highest number of overnight stays from international visitors since 1995 – accounting for a turnover of 128 billion Danish kroner and 161,000 jobs. 

In Vordingborg and Stevns Municipalities, overnight stays in the last two years have grown by 8.5% and 10.9% respectively, which is marginally better than the national average of 7.1%. 

In Vordingborg Municipality, the number of overnight stays increased from 384,158 in 2018 to 399,844 in 2019 (8.5%).

Sustainable growth in tourism

The new government, with finance minister Simon Kollerup at the helm of the tourism sector, is undertaking a huge restructuring of Denmark that will put the country on a much greener path. With broad support from across parliament, we have set ourselves the most ambitious climate goals in the world with an aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 70% by 2030. 

This ambition extends to the tourism sector, with finance minister Simon Kollerup having stated that:

Denmark must have an ambitious national strategy for the sustainable growth of Danish tourism. We must strike a balance so that the positive effects of tourism on growth and employment can go hand in hand with the development of green and eco-friendly tourism opportunities. The government’s ambition is that Denmark is to be one of the most sustainable tourist destinations in the world.

Tourism in Denmark not only allows many of us to make a living, but it also contributes to much of what gives us quality of life. But we must not ignore the fact that tourism can also entail negative consequences for our environment, nature and the everyday lives of our citizens. That is why we need a national strategy which places focus both on promoting the continued growth of Danish tourism and on ensuring that our tourism sector is sustainable.

The financial advantages of DGNB certification

A DGNB business model is not exact but depends on the type of construction, the location and scope of the urban area in question and of course the nature of the project and those involved in the development. However, international studies suggest that the economic benefits of green and sustainable construction typically exceed the expenses – and suggest that the costs are not necessarily any more expensive than in conventional construction (source: WGBC (2013): “The Business Case for Green Building”).

Benefits typically take the form of fewer costs for energy, operation and maintenance as well as higher rental incomes and sales values and considerably higher productivity among employees as a result of better indoor climates and greater robustness (source: WGBC (2013): “The Business Case for Green Building”).

The same studies also show that there is a general perception within the construction sector that the costs of green construction are higher than they really are. The DGNB system rewards projects which are financially sustainable in both the short and long term, with the LCC tool being used to analyse lifetime costs and make assessments.

An attractive development or urban area will ensure fast sales and better prices since sustainability increases the value of the development in both the short and long term. Simultaneously, the value generated by a construction project over the course of its lifetime is typically many times greater than its original construction budget.
