South Zealand: Natural experiences

Møns Klint
The South of the region is dominated by the highest cliffs in the country, great places to get out exploring and walking. Everywhere affords you great views.

Møns Klint

Møns Klint is an unmissable experience when you are in South Zealand. The trails at the cliff top weave through woodland and are excellent hikes, offering you superb views out into the Baltic Sea. You might glance some of the region’s rare orchids on your hike here.

At GeoCenter Møns Klint, you can learn more about the formation of the cliffs and the fossils you’ve seen along the way. Inland from the cliffs, you’ll find more scenic hiking trails with views of the sea, through the Mandemarke Hills.

Stevns Klint

Stevns Klint are more dramatic chalk and limestone cliffs, where you’ll see millions of years of geology exposed by the unstoppable sea. Visit the precarious old Højerup Church, which partly collapsed from erosion in 1928. Fossil hunters will love Stevns Klint. The nearby Faxe limestone quarry and Geomuseum gives you the chance to fossil hunt in earnest and learn more about the geological origins of the area.

Stunning views

You can see extraordinary 360 degree views at the long Knudshoved Odde point which stretches out into the Smålandshavet Archipelago. This unique walk through Bronze Age landscape will also take you through Denmark’s only American Buffalo herd.

On Falster you find Denmark's southernmost point, Gedser Odde. The flat landscape gives you never-ending views of the Baltic Sea. It is beautiful but can be rough when the wind howls and the waves come crashing in.

Seal colonies

On Lolland, you can visit the Rødsand Game Reserve, whose waters are used for breeding and resting by large colonies of seals. You can watch the seals at rest and play from a distance.
