Danish regions: Bornholm

The Baltic Sea island of Bornholm is a destination that inspires seaside stays in coastal villages as well as active holidays in open nature. A small island no more than 40km wide, Bornholm is a unique destination of great variety.

Rocky northern coast

A string of historic fishing towns along the rocky northern and eastern coast of Bornholm offer picturesque settings, seaside hotels and seafood experiences. Here you also find woodlands as well as the island’s arts and crafts museum, Bornholm Kunstmuseum. Rappelling and kayaking are among the activities in the northern part of the island. Perched on a rugged cliff by the tip of the island you find Hammershus, one of Scandinavia’s largest castle ruins. Daytrips are available by ferry from the town of Gudhjem to the archipelago of Ærtholmene (Christiansø), a historic naval harbour untouched by time.
