Stevns Klint is on the UNESCO World Heritage list because a dramatic chapter of Earth’s history hides in the cliff.
A thin layer of fish clay tells the story about how the dinosaurs went extinct and half of all Earth’s species were wiped out 66 million years ago when an asteroid hit Earth.
But the beautiful nature of the Stevns Klints also contain a host of other stories and experiences.
Walk along the cliff on a 20 kilometre pathway that connects the highlights of the cliff.

Stevns Klint is a living piece of nature. Landslides and cliff falls kan occur all year round.
It may be unsafe both along the edge of the cliff and on the beaches below.
It is allowed to gather fossils all along the Stevns Klint. Just observe some simple rules to make sure that the cliff will remain a beautiful and welcoming place for future generations.
It is not permitted to chisel in the cliff itself, but you can find plenty of broken off blocks of limestone on the beach.
Don’t fiddle with the fish clay – it should be preserved for future visitors to see.
The cliff at Højerup is especially vulnerable, so no using hammer and chisel. But feel free to collect whatever lies on the beach.
If you think you found something special or rare, contact the museum and have an expert take a look.
