Steps from beach to top of Møns Klint
The white chalk cliffs of Møn are created from the shells of tiny animals and plants settling on what, 75 million years ago, was a tropical seabed. During the last ice age, the chalk was pushed to the surface by glaciers covering northern Europe. The cliffs are up to 100 meters (328 feet) tall.

- Møns Klint, the highest Danish cliff, free walking tour: Alternatively, it is possible to find free parking in the surrounding area. You can walk about 2km towards Møns Klint, also for free. Reviews on Google Maps are mostly positive about the view at Møns Klint, although some visitors complain about the many stairs, flies, or the smell of seaweed. The view on the side of the cliff and from the beach seems to be worth the trouble nonetheless, especially early in the morning, at sunrise.
