Standing on top of the Cliff of Møn - 128 m above the sea - you are at the same time on top of the Danish chalk foundation. Denmark is entirely built on a platform of chalk, and therefore the Cliff of Møn bears witness of the enormous forces that have created the country and the unique flora and fauna of the area.more
The main reason for visiting the island are these spectacular chalk cliffs from the times when Norway pushed Denmark up from the ice age seas and created this island nation, all of which you can learn more about at the Geo Centre (see next tip). The marvellous white coastline goes on for miles and there are several approaches, the easiest being at...more
Denmark is full of medieval churches with lovely frescoes and the most famous painter of them all is 15th century artist Elmelunde who is so called because he is from the village with the same name here on the island. Elmelunde Church is a delightful whitewashed building full of art and well worth a stop, but another church with fascinating...more
This walk starts at the GeoCenter , which you can find in the woods on top of the cliffs.Many signs lead the way to it.If you want to see as much as possible of Møns Klint on top as well on the beach then this walk to Gråryg is a good idea.From the center you take the path south to the Gråryg staircase with 468 steps to the beach.During the walk...more
Next to the view point you can visit Møn's Geo Center. I actually haven't see it, but you can check out the web site.... it is quite interesting (especially if you're with kids)In front of the entrance there is nicely prepared playground made from branches old trees and trunks. There is also big parking place. I belive that preaviously it was...more
The main reason, if not in many cases the only one to visit the Møn island, is to see the Cliffs. You can admire the view from the hight of 128 meters at the highest point:) or get downstairs and rise your head up high......well....and feel pretty small:)))It is quite interesting place, considering that Danmark is more kind of a "flat" country. The...more
A brand new visitors centre opened at Møns Klint in 2007 and is one of the most interesting places I have visited in Denmark! Sadly, we had to rush through it but I shall have to come back to what is a fascinating multimedia exhibition on the birth of Denmark and much more. You are met by a part dealing with the creation itself and how those cliffs...more
The oldest part of the church is the central part of the choir which dates back to the year 1080. The lower part of the tower dates back to around year 1300, but the tower was first finished in the beginning of the 16th century.If you plan to visit the Cliffs of Møn visit this great building too. It is on your way maybe 8 kilometers after Stege.more
Møns Klint is a very special place. It is similar to Stevns Klint, but still very different from the nature and geology found in Denmark. The cliff is many kilometers long and 128 meters at the highest place (Dronningestolen; The chair of the queen). From here you can see Sweden and Germany on a clear day. The white chalk that forms the cliff was...more
The cliffs of the Møn! An amaxing beauty that is so unexpected. The cliffs are soon to be (hopefully) a national park.. Please see http://www.sns.dk/nationalparker/web/english_map.htm and http://www.sns.dk/nationalparker/english.htm for more informationl There are walking paths, stairs down to the beach (no elderly unlesss they are very fit, the...more
It is very tricky to get to Mon.Please plan in advance if you need to be back the same day as there are not too many places to stay around close to the Cliffs.Public Transport is expensive at 300 Kr, 40 Euro, 65 USD per head round trip.Cars are even worse, about 200 USD rental per day without unlimited mileage!So, there are not too many choices!Put...more
ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND:WALKING IN THE CLIFF AREA IS AT YOU OWN RISK!!!! Møns Klint is a piece of living nature. Landslides and rock falls may occur all over the cliff- all yaer round, but especially in periods of sudden thaw, during major precipitation and following long spells of drought. Accordingly it can be extremely dangerou to walk on top of the...more
A few people have been killed by landslides at Møns Klint. Some have been killed under the cliff, and some have been killed, walking to close to the fragile edge of the cliff. Read the warning signs and take them seriously. Notice that landslides most occur at spring or autumn when it rains most.more
On the way to the Møns Klint you have the opportunity to get around the country side...We had our own sheep fanclub at one point of our bicycle trip. It was really hard to leave behind those fellows...Real fun to cycle through the green fields with the blue waters on the horizon.more
Yes, Møn is known as the best riding country in the nation due to the rolling hills and forests. Having not tried all areas myself, I don't know, but I do know that I'd love to ride here for precisely those reasons as there are forest trails everywhere and the hills glow in the evening sunset and would make a great up and down trek. You can go for a trek with the Møns Klint stables next to the youth hostel. They have all sorts of horses and some are suitable for beginners too. Prices vary according to how long you go for.
There is also an Icelandic horse centre (second link) - Icelandics are popular trekking horses in Scandinavia and very sure footed.
There is a strong hunts tradition here too so you might want to contact the stables if you want to join their annual events.
Favorite thing: Oh, the sheer drop here at Store Hale where you can walk along the top and look down on the beach. To be ctd.
