    Private tour for 2
    Expensive to get there. The tour was booked out so we striked an agreement with our taxi driver to drive us there . In the end it was cheaper than the tour ! It’s is breathtaking and the steps are quite easy to negotiate . Just CHECK THE TIDE before you go

    A must visit
    This unique spot is a must visit place when around. It's free and contains very scenic nature. A lot of beautiful views both from below and above. Walk from the parking down the main stairs and turn left on the "beach" and take the next stairs up is a tour of approx 1,5 hours with many nice sightings.

It’s beautiful and a fun walk up and down the stairs however I’m surprised that there’s no free water especially for elderly people or children. Too exploited for money you have to buy very expensive water in plastic bottles. And those bottles are found along the staircase. Is it not possible for the Danish government to provide free portable water for the tourists to either fill water bottles or drink directly?

Our trip turned out so much more than i expected. I went with my husband and 2small children age 3yrs n 5 yrs. I would also like to mention, we are not very active or sporty family. So we had our doubts in heart if we would manage fine. The place is beautiful. You do not need to be an artist or photographer to love the scenery of this place. Its so so so beautiful. We drove from copenhagen. The moment, we took to exit from freeway, it is like landing to a fairyland. Neat roads, small houses on both sides of roads, each with maintained gardens, farms (i think it was raddish planted), windmills, tiny shops. My children really thought it was some other world. Finally end of the road is this GEocentre. We took a round first inside just to get an idea of the place. It proved really helpful, as the place has small videos about the cliffs and the fossils found there. It also has fossiles on display which people have found from this area which includes the teeth of a sea dinosaur and bones of squids found at the time of dinosaurs. My kids got super excited that they could probably find some of their own!! Geocenter also arranges some free tours to the beach sometimes. We were lucky as there was a tour just after 30mins we reached the place. Guide took us along with another couple who had kids age 7,5 and 2!! They carried pram too with them in hand while going down in steps. 497 steps my kids ran n finished in around 15min...too excited to dig some fossil. There was a land slide just 1week before so chances were to find more fossil in that area. Once u reach down...mouth just opens by looking at the colors of water n chalk mountain. Kids start to dig immediately. There were many seriously digging n trying to find a fossil. We tried too and FOUND 1 piece of bone of squid of dino era (guide confirmed it). My kids found some sharp stone which they imagined it was dino tooth. So much excitement to climb up to keep all the findings in bag to show friends in day care. 20 mins to climb up!!! 497 steps n no pain no complaints. If we can go, any one with small kids can go. Geo centre has 2movies in 3D explaining how fossils were found n formed. Very nicely n easily explained...even my 3yr old knows it now!!! Did i mention their cafeteria has excellent coffee (i really wondered if there is fresh coffee tree somewhere) and yummy softy icecream. Just great after climb. Even their soveniour shop was not too expensive, they had real amber jewellery for almost half price of copenhagen showrooms.

Only one thing to complain was, we had to buy headsets for 10DKK if wanted to listen movies in English. Movies were running in Danish , there were 2rows with eng subt headset points. I feel headset should be included in price. If you are looking for larger than life museums like America's, then also you could feel less satisfied. But in Europe usually we have small places...be it amusement park or museums.

There is knuthenborg animal safari 1hr from here, opens in spring n summer. We clubbed our trip with that for a perrrfect weekend. You could do that too!!!

The chalk cliffs at Møns Klint are breathtaking, and a welcome change of scenery from the mostly-flat terrain of the rest of Denmark. We visited on a sunny day, which made the experience even more enjoyable. You can see a lot from walking along the top of the cliffs on the trail, but if you are able and willing it's worth it to take the steps down to the beach and see the cliffs from below. My suggestion is to walk along the cliff path first, starting at the GeoCenter heading south, and descend to the beach when you reach the stairs. Then, follow the beach back to the north and come back up the stairs by the GeoCenter. The southern steps are more "straight down" and easier to go down, and the northern steps are more gradual with platforms and benches to rest on the way up if needed. It is almost 500 steps down, and just as many back up. Wear sturdy shoes as the beach is rocky and the hiking paths are a little hilly. Be sure to pick up a map/info brochure from the info board by the picnic area (available in Danish, English & German). Be ready to climb! Enjoy!

It is free to visit the cliffs, but there is a 25DKK parking fee (~$5), and there is an entrance fee for the GeoCenter museum (but not for the shop or toilets - those are free).

A note on getting to the cliffs: We drove in a car, and it is an easy day trip from Copenhagen. There are public transit options to get there, more in the summer than off season, but I think there are several connections that must be made. There is no rail service on the island of Møn. Many people were arriving on bicycles, and that would be an excellent way to go and enjoy the countryside on the way if you have the time!

Very few places in the world will offer both a walk through the forest and almost immediately on the beach, offering both tranquility and beautiful scenery.
the walk way to the beach and in the forest are well constructed and easy to walk along.

We walked through the Elder forests from Magleby to get to the cliffs. It's about a 7km walk, but the forests are so beautiful, it was definitely worth it. Upon arrival we first visited the Geocenter - good and informative exhibits, interactive displays for the kids. If you don't have children, I would say the Geocenter does not have to be an essential stop on your visit to the cliffs. To the right of the Geocenter are the stairs leading down the cliffs to the rocky beach at the bottom. It is quite a steep climb down, and more tiring up, but we did not experience any difficulties with this, and neither of us are very fit. Once at the bottom, you will experience the most dramatic scenery in Denmark. The glistening white cliffs are spectacular. The beach has a rustic, almost eerie atmosphere.. This is as spectacular as the scenery in Denmark gets, so if you are into nature and scenery, I would strongly advise to allocate a day to visit the beautiful white cliffs of Moens Klint.

Mons Klint, I suspect, is one of the best natural sites in Denmark. These spectacular and dramatic white chalk cliffs overlooking the Baltic Sea, on the picturesque Danish island of Mon are often overlooked by international travelers and guidebooks. However, Mons Klint offers one of the best day trips from Copenhagen (2 hrs south). Similar to the larger White Cliffs of Dover, they are made up of chalk and run dramatically up to near the ocean's edge.

Hundreds of steps (with strategically placed resting spots) run from the ridge to the rocky beach, where visitors can walk a kilometer or more in each direction to explore the many vistas. The view of the cliffs is most striking from below. Unusual plants and trees line the hiking trails both down to the beach and on nearby paths

A modern interpretive center, complete with movies and exhibits, is located near the top of the stairs down to the ocean, with a cafe. Admission to the cliffs and the park surrounding it are free except for a nominal parking charge. There is admission to the center.

This was for me the highlight of a recent trip to Denmark.

We visited Møns Klint on a cool, windy, sunny, absolutely gorgeous April day and enjoyed the stunning beauty of the area so much! An very different piece of Denmark - nothing like anything I have ever seen anywhere else in the country. Worth all the driving and all the steps up and down to the beach - I believe 491 steps in each direction. (Possibly different number in the different stairs.)

Several people comment that it «stinks» on the beach. Nonsense. It smells the ocean, it’s as simple as that. Simply wonderful.

If I had the chance, I could walk the beach and pick stones and study and feel each one of them for hours and hours to an end. And if I had the chance, I could fill every pocket and every possible place in my clothes with all those really special ones that I found to bring them home with me. I just love those rolling stones - a bit like the stones on the beach in Nice, France.

We were perhaps lucky with the sun and blue skies the day we visited, but I imagine it is beautiful here in any kind of weather - simply different, that’s all.

The forest surrounding the area was also a beautiful experience, with the sun shining down in between all the still naked trees, not yet stopped by all the leaves that will soon be bursting, and the anemones and other spring flowers spread all over. Magical!

You don’t want to miss this!!!

From the visitor centre, u can walk along the top where u overlook the beach n cliff. Already specular, thus we were wondering if it is worth the climb down the steps to the beach. Decided to do it in the end. Did not regret the decision. Absolutely worth it. The feeling when u are down at shore is just 'wow', to the staring up at the lime cliffs!

Truly fantastic place for a hike and scenic photography, but it gets pretty crowded closer to lunch. So get a bit earlier, and make sure you have a hiking route prepared as you'll find very quite places a short hike away from the center.
I'd advise to bring own food so you can enjoy own freshly brewed coffee while looking at a breathtaking view.
