The Cliffs of Møn rise majestically with their white slopes above the turquoise sea. Teeth from the Mosasaur, the killer lizard, which lived here 70 million years ago, have been found in the chalk near the Cliffs. Today, the Cliffs are also home to unique – if not quite as frightening – wildlife. You may be lucky enough to see peregrine falcons, for example.
But Møn is much more than its Cliffs. The island also offers lovely farm shops, artisan workshops, atmospheric cafés, child-friendly beaches and beautiful parks and forests.
Dairy and farm shop "Møn Is"
On the southeast section of the Møn route, you pass both Råbylille Strand (Råbylille Beach) and Klintholm Strand (Klintholm Beach). Explore Møn by sea on the cutter Discovery departing from Klintholm.
Take a well-earned break at the dairy and farm shop Møn Is. Take the opportunity to meet the cows supplying the milk for your ice cream.
Museumsgården at Keldbylille is a typical Danish farm built in 1800. It stands as its last owner left it and tells the story of the development of agriculture from 1800 to the 1930s when the first tractor arrived at the farm.
Møns Klint (the Cliffs of Møn) speak for themselves with their white chalk cliffs above the turquoise sea. But Klinteskoven and the common at Høvblege also offer spectacular scenery. The Large Blue butterfly lives at Høvblege, and nine species of orchid are just a small part of the rich flora of the area.
GeoCenter Møns Klint is the most modern science centre in Northern Europe with its interactive exhibitions, large 3D cinema and exciting daily activities.

The northeast section of the route on Møn takes you past Liselund Gl. Slot (Liselund Old Castle) and its park which is one of Denmark's finest examples of a Romantic garden. You also pass Sømarkedyssen, one of Denmark's large dolmens, which has nearly 200 rock engravings.
Take a detour to Magleby Kirke (Magleby Church). The grave digger will be happy to show you around the churchyard. This is also a good place to fill up your water bottle and top up your tyres with air.

Between Stege and the Cliffs of Møn, you pass three churches, each with their own interesting decorations and stories to tell.
The Elmelunde Master started his extensive work at Elmelunde Kirke (Elmelunde Church) which is also the oldest stone church on Møn. The church was built in 1085, but has seen various changes and additions over the years. Only the triumphal arc and two long walls remain of the original church.

The medieval town of Stege has been - and still is - the trading centre of Møn and South Zealand. Throughout the summer, a market is held here every Tuesday when the town buzzes with trade, entertainment and holiday atmosphere.
Experience the herring market at the beginning of September with its herring, medieval music and maritime activities.
Stege offers many excellent and atmospheric restaurants.
