In the 19th century Stevns was a popular resort. From 1879 you could take the train to Rødvig and steamers sailed tourists to town. Many spent the night at Rødvig Inn or the only real seaside hotel “Klinten”. The tourists enjoyed the beach or sailed to Højerup where they saw Stevns Klint and the Old Church. Tourists still visit Rødvig.

On the southern coast of Stevns, you will find the seaport of Rødvig, which at the end of the 1800s developed from being a cluster of fisherman's houses and an old entrenchment into a town with a harbour and a railway. Fishermen would go fishing from here, and limestone and flint from the cliff would be shipped from here.

Go for a walk on the marina past yachts and fishing boats on to the shipyard, which is more than 100 years old. By the harbour, you can also see the white flint kiln, which has become a landmark for Rødvig. Photo: Rudy Hemmingsen
