Stage 6

CLIFFS OF MØN – 497 STEPS FROM THE FOREST CLIFF TO THE BEACH – WHITE CHALK – TURQUOISE GREEN AND AZURE BLUE WATERS – FOSSIL HUNTING – GUIDED MOUNTAIN BIKE TOURS – DARK SKY – MILLIONS OF STARS – GALLERY 44 – DAIRY FARM SHOP AND ICE CREAM – MARKET TOWN LIFE
STUBBEKØBING – STEGE

Start Stage 6, with a magical boat ride on the heritage ferry ‘Ida’ that connects Stubbekøbing with Bogø. This historical ferry is one of the oldest, surviving wooden ferries. Ida was given the title ‘A Historical Monument’ in 2019. On Bogø and Møn there awaits a wealth of galleries, farm shops, local food producers and much, much more – it is definitely worth a stop.

On the ride around Møn, you will experience a unique part of the country and the reason that Møn became Denmark’s first UNESCO biodiversity region. Once it gets dark, look up to experience the DARK SKY phenomenon, namely a jet-black night sky with millions of stars winking at you.

Stage 6 goes via the Cliffs of Møn, one of Denmark’s most magnificent, natural occurrences. It is also the Baltic Sea Cycle Route’s steepest gradient, but it is worth it! When you stand at the top and see the 128-meter high chalk cliffs that rise out of the turquoise green waters, you won’t regret it one bit.

You finish Stage 6 in Stege, one of Denmark’s oldest market towns, overflowing with boutiques and beautiful places to eat. During the summer, it comes alive with activities and events.

You can start Stage 6 in Stege, riding in the opposite direction via the Cliffs of Møn to Bogø and Stubbekøbing on Falster.

THE CLIFFS OF MØN

The Cliffs of Møn are one of the most beautiful, natural phenomena, created over 70 million years ago. Experience the awe-inspiring 128-meter high chalk white cliffs that rise out of the turquoise-green waters along the 7km long coastline. Jump off the bike and walk down the 497 steps from the top of the cliff to the beach. Enjoy the view of the surrounding forest from the various vista points along the way through Klinteskoven. Once you reach the beach, do a bit of fossil hunting, finding 70 million-year-old fossils, belemnites and amber.

The Cliffs of Møn need to be experienced both from the top and the bottom. From above you have a formidable view of the Baltic Sea and the azure blue waters, against the backdrop of the white cliffs. From below, the magnificent, steeply rising cliff is simply overwhelming. At the very top of the cliffs, is the new GeoCenter Møns Klint – a brilliant place to visit and experience the history of how Denmark was created, with activities for both big and small.
