In the footsteps of dinosaurs in Denmark

If your kids are mad about dinosaurs, you’ve come to the right place. While few dinosaur remains have been found in Scandinavia, Denmark has somewhat of a remarkable past when it comes to the Cretaceous Period, and there are lots of sights where you can walk in the footsteps of dinosaurs.

You can also find out more about them, look for fossils on our beaches and play in a dinosaur-themed forest. There are even LEGO dinosaurs at LEGO House! Let’s step back in time to when dinosaurs ruled the world!

Møns Klint

Denmark’s premier dinosaur site is around an hour south of Denmark on the island of Møn. Møns Klint is a huge and beautiful series of white chalk cliffs 128m above the sea, leading down to a beach where you’re almost guaranteed to find a few fossils. When you’ve had a walk, head up to the GeoCenter Møns Klint where you can see dinosaur reconstructions, watch 3D films and go into an excavation cave to try your hand at being a real life palaeontologist.
