The beautiful Danish cliffs Møns Klint (and how to get there)

From Copenhagen to Møns Klint

Sometimes, you just want to escape the busy city life and crowded touristic spots in the Copenhagen. So did we today. My dear boss took my colleague and me on a road trip and we exchanged our office for nature, endless beaches along the gigantic chalk cliffs and lots of stairs 😉 I hope this short article and the next pictures make you go “Wow this is in Denmark?” – Because I did not expect to see such a wonderful landscape only 2 hours from Copenhagen 🙂

Lots of stairs but the stunning view is worth it

At Møns Klint we enjoy the calm nature and took a long walk at the beach beneath the giant cliffs. It took us a while walk on the chalky soil to get from one staircase to another because they are quite a distance apart – but the view and fresh air were amazing and worth the walk 🙂

We arrived on a Wednesday around 11am and the beach at Møns Klint was almost empty! We had a nice walk around the area and left after about 2,5 hours after lunch.

There is also a GeoCenter where you can learn about the history of Denmark’s nature. It’s perfect for families with small children 🙂

How to get to Møns Klint

Møns Klint is located around 150 km from Copenhagen city center. If you don’t have a car like most students here, it might be a good idea to rent a car for one day and share the costs with some friends (that you bring along of course) 😉

We had an easy 2-hour drive and found that Møns Klint is a bit off the beaten track. There was a small parking lot at the GeoCenter and from there it is only a few minutes walk to the cliffs.

It is not easy to get to Møns Klint without a car, but either way, it is worth it!

You can take the train and bus as well, but the shortest connection would take 3 hours while it only takes 1,5 hours to drive down to Southern Sjaelland. If you decide to go with public transportation, you can take the train to Vordingborg from Copenhagen Central Station and from there you change to bus 660R in direction “Stege” to get to the island Møn and if you want to go closer to the cliffs, you can take bus 678.

(You can usually check the latest train and bus connections with www.rejseplanen.dk but I tried it, rejseplanen didn’t work this time😃)

The costs for one way to Møns Klint would be around 350 to 450 kr for all the train and bus tickets. Renting a car one day would cost around 750kr with pick up stations at Copenhagen Airport (without insurance or extra costs for young drivers though).

Let’s be honest. this look like Australia or somewhere in Asia but not Denmark 🙂

On our walk back, we took the path uphill which reminded me of Australia again
