Panorama route: Clifftop drama

Chalky white cliffs and cold war secrets

Stevns Klint

3. Clifftop drama

You don’t necessarily need to watch Nordic Noir thrillers to experience a little Danish cliff-hanging drama – you can also take a bicycle ride along Denmark’s rocky east coast to the cliffs of Stevns Klint, soon to be designated as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Here the 750 year old Højerup gl. Church is perched on the clifftop. The chancel tumbled into the Baltic Sea back in 1926 and now the rest of the church hangs on the edge. There is more drama to be experienced further down the 42 km cycle route, at Stevnsfort Cold War Museum, a cold-war outpost that features artillery batteries and 1.6 km of secret underground bunkers and passageways. Download the app to learn more about the chalky cliffs of Stevns and the many activities in the area including scuba diving. Events in the area include the annual open-door event at local arts and craft studios from 24-25 August 2014.

The Panorama initiative

Powered by Cycling: Panorama is a new initiative that makes it easier for holidaymakers in Denmark to experience some of the best the nation has to offer. The Panorama initiative offers 26 new looped cycling routes that branch out from two of Denmark’s most scenic national cycling route - the West Coast Route and the Berlin-Copenhagen Route. The short routes have been upgraded with new cycling infrastructure and an international hospitality quality labelling system - Bike+Bed. Many of these routes offer a unique chance to explore nature, heritage and family attractions in Denmark by pedal power.

New route signage

Bike+Bed quality labelling of bicycle friendly accommodation.
80 hostels, camping grounds, B&Bs and hotels are set to join the scheme in 2014.
