|The limestone in Denmark is
lying near the
soil surface in a stretch from Thy, through Himmerland and Djursland
through Mid-Seeland to the island Mon at south-east.
On Djursland the limestone is exposed along the eastern coast in up to c. 10 m high cliffs. Limestone makes the soil very alkalic and poor in some nutrients. A number of plants are characteristic on chalky ground.
The picture shows limestone cliffs near Sangstrup on the tip of Djursland. The cliffs near Sangstrup are really a visit worth during low tide. The sea shore is not sand but limestone and allmost look like the tropical coral reefs with lots of interesting organisms.
