Denmark: Stevns Klint

Stevns Klint is a series of white chalk cliffs on the eastern side of the Danish island of Zealand. It’s actually a UNESCO World Heritage site for the wealth of its paleontology – there have been 830 Species of micro and macro fauna found within the just 40m height of the cliffs – from tiny suspension feeders to ammonites to prehistoric sharks. Also here right on top of the cliffs is the Hojerup Gamle Church from the year 1200, an austere structure with old frescos, almost falling over the cliff and into the sea. A staircase leads to the bottom of the cliffs and to some spectacular boulders. There is also a new church from 1913 a bit more inland. And finally – the Stevns Fyr Lighthouse a couple kilometers up the coast.
