A real Baltic Sea dream: The Danish islands of Zealand, Møn, and Lolland-Falster
Are you considering a day trip or a short getaway to the Danish Riviera?
Then experience the Baltic Sea islands of Zealand, Møn, and Lolland-Falster, which are among the most popular holiday destinations in Denmark. Just a stone's throw from Copenhagen, you'll find green forests, impressive cliffs, untouched beaches, and historic towns right on the doorstep of the Danish capital.
Drive along gently winding coastal roads, stop in picturesque coastal towns and fishing villages, and enjoy the three Danish Baltic Sea islands at their best!
Zealand offers two breathtaking architectural masterpieces, both UNESCO World Heritage Sites: The Gothic Cathedral in Roskilde and the beautiful Kronborg Castle, which William Shakespeare made world-famous with his drama about the contemplative Prince Hamlet.
Both the islands of Lolland-Falster and Møn boasts beautiful landscapes and is an ideal destination for families. Here, great attractions like the Knuthenborg Safari Park, Denmark's largest water park Lalandia, or the Maribo Lakes Nature Park offer lots of fun and variety for your short holiday in Denmark.
Møns Klint on the island of Møn is one of the most beautiful places in Denmark. The 6 kilometers long and up to 128 meters high chalk cliffs are a distinctive landmark of the island and were formed 70 million years ago.
During this time, the rock was formed on the seabed from the remnants of tiny algae. Stairs lead down to the sea at several points. However, caution is advised during the walk, as there have been several larger chalk slides in the past.

Time travel in the Geocenter
One of the biggest attractions on Møn is the Geocenter Møns Klint. This exciting time travel experience spans more than 70 million years of Earth's history.
New technologies, interpretations by artists, and rare fossils take you down to the seabed and up into the unique nature of the chalk cliffs. The exhibits include the geological era, the present, a workshop, a glacier cinema, a climbing cave, a special dinosaur exhibition, and a 3D cinema.
Middle Ages and sweets
The charming town of Stege, with its half-timbered houses and narrow alleys, is also worth a visit. Especially exciting for kids is a trip to Stege Castle, a medieval castle in Romanesque style from the 13th century.
The youngsters will undoubtedly be thrilled by Møn Bolcher as well. This confectionery factory produces sweets using traditional recipes. All year round, children can make their own lollipops under expert guidance.
North Zealand – Home of Danish kings and poets
North Zealand is just a 30-minute drive from Copenhagen and is a must-visit for those who love gardens, culture, and nature. Stroll through royal gardens and experience living history in a region that has been used as a retreat for the Danish royal family for centuries.
During their short holiday in Denmark, literature fans should visit Rungstedlund, the birthplace of author Karen Blixen. After spending 17 years as a farmer in Africa, she returned to Denmark and lived there until her death in 1962. In Rungstedlund, she wrote all her internationally known stories.
