The cliffs of Moen (in Danish Møns klint) is a popular tourist destination and is located at the shoreline of the Baltic Sea in eastern part of Denmark. The area is a nature reserve consisting of a steep woodland with up to 120 meter tall limestone cliffs. Moen is ideal for activities like hiking, biking, horse rides, camping and kayaking. The cliffs of Moen is definitely some of the best of Danish nature. The highest point near Mons Klint is 143 meter above sea level, called Aborrebjerg from where you have an amazing view over the entire nature reserve of Moen. There is a really pleasant campsite from where it is easy to access to forest and the cliffs. In addition, the area is famous for its geocenter which is a museum. Here are exhibited the geological settings at Møns Klint and it is very family friendly.
When you are visiting the cliffs of Moen I will recommend visiting the old town of Stege, which is the biggest town on the island. It is a cosy old charming town with old houses and an impressive fortification. Stege offers shopping, restaurants and cafes and is thereby popular for locals and tourists. Visit all kinds of small shops with antique, local art or beer – the local beers taste really good.
I can also recommend Nyord, which is a very small island north of Moen with a amazing bird life. You can drive to Nyord from Moen. The village on Nyord is like one big open museum. All the old houses, the harbor and the beautiful small gardens with fruit trees are a real danish fairy tale. Visit one of the yards shops or the bed and breakfast – which is a lovely experience. The village is also known for its church which is very idyllic and has a very unique shape. Many couples from far away wants to be married here. Due to the narrow streets it is not allowed to drive in the village. Thats by the atmosphere is very special. Free parking with picnic area is found just outside the v
From Moen you can reach Copenhagen in just over an hour. Further, the ferries to Germany in Gedser or Rødby are also reachable in about one hour. The island of Møn is connected to Zealand by several bridges.
