Møns Klint

Unique nature in a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve

The chalk-white chalk slopes, which make up the majestic Møns Klint, are a must-see for all nature lovers. Take a walk at the foot of the 6 km long cliff and experience the breathtaking view of the slopes that rise more than 100 meters vertically up to the sky.

The area is a UNESCO Biosphere and on the tentative list to become a UNESCO World Heritage Site - which is why of course you should also experience this amazing place. Get a taste of this video:

There are lots of opportunities for unique experiences, both on land, at sea and in the air. Go fossil hunting or experience the cliff from kayak on the turquoise sea, underwater, from a paraglider, on a bike, on horseback or on foot. 

If you are lucky, you can experience the rare peregrine falcons - and you can also explore rare plants, including 18 different orchid species.

Note that all traffic on and around the cliff is at your own risk. If you walk at the foot of the cliff along the beach, be aware that there may be landslides that can make the trip difficult.

GeoCenter Møns Klint

At the top of the cliff is GeoCenter Møns Klint, which offers a lot of exhibitions about Denmark's geological development and activities for the whole family.

Feel the rush on the climbing course in the tree tops, rush off on a mountain bike or dive under the water and experience the exciting animal and plant life. 

Note that some experiences cost extra and that there may be seasonal opening hours for certain activities.
