NV Cruising Guide


The approach to the lighted harbour is possible at night, but it is recommended not to enter the unlighted Ulvsund at night. Watch out for the unlit red buoy directly in the harbour entrance. The approach during the day is unproblematic and takes place directly via Ulvsund. Clearance height of the bridge is 25,6m. When entering the harbour, a strong cross current must be expected, but this decreases at the pier heads.


In the yacht or fishing harbour you can moor in 1.8 - 2.5m water depth by arrangement with the harbour master. Larger yachts can moor at the head of the ferry pier (about 3.5m water depth), but hard-setting current at times.

The ferry pier is closed.

Anchorage: Behind the Viemose forest, about 2sm north of the harbour. Here you lie close under land at about 5m water depth.


At the port there are good supply, fuel and repair services.

Today hardly anyone will know how the name of the place was pronounced in 1304. In any case, it was written as follows: Kaluaehaghae. Named in King Waldemar's Earth Book in 1231, the area was called Schanygnhafn, meaning Skåne Harbour, indicating that the fishermen of Kalvehave took their herrings to Skåne (now Sweden) for sale.

Before the 26-metre-high Drolling Alexandrines Bridge was built from Kalvehave to Møn in 1943, the place was a ferry point. Today the small ferry that used to run between Koster on Møn and Kalvehave is used by the experimental station on the island of Lindholm in Stege Bay.

More cosy than Kalvehave is Gammel Kalvehave (Old Kalvehafen) to the west of the harbour.

Multiple half-timbered houses and a late Romanesque church dating from 1225 add to the charm of the old village. North of Kalvehave begins Viemose Skov, a forest that holds 32 Bronze Age burial mounds. Some of them are up to five metres high. An avenue has been created along the forest, where the railway still ran from Vordingborg to Kalvehave until 1959.

A merchant, a ship chandler and a snack stand are located at the harbour. The colonial-style hotel "Færgegården" at the harbour houses a restaurant and a pub. The proximity of the Ulvsund Bridge to the harbour means that there is little noise pollution. There are shopping possibilities in a supermarket. The beautiful view of Ulvsund and the island of Møn is worth mentioning. There is a ferry connection between Kalvehave and Møn.
