Experience Denmark's wild side on the dramatic island of Bornholm

Bornholm

Visit Bornholm, Denmark's slow-paced Baltic island. Bornholm receives many hours of sunshine and the extraordinary, pure light has always attracted artists to the island. Bornholm presents the Danish landscape in a nutshell; it is hilly and fertile with fields and large forests. It's the only place in Denmark where you can walk out on craggy, granite coastline. As well as pure, white beaches, like Dueodde, you can enjoy a unique island culture of round churches, historic smoke houses and quaint fishing villages when you visit Bornholm.
