Danish regions: Bornholm

The Baltic Sea island of Bornholm is a destination that inspires seaside stays and active holidays in open nature. Among the activities are rappelling and kayaking. There are designated bicycle routes and historic towns. Among the attractions is Scandinavia’s largest castle ruin, Hammershus.

Silky sands, bicycle-friendly roads and roaming bison

Little more than 30km wide, the rocky island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea has no less than 230km of bicycle-friendly roads and 158km of pristine coastline, 30km of which are beaches with sand so silky that it has been used to make hourglasses. Dotted across the island are family attractions such as the Bornholm Medieval Centre and the Bornholm Butterfly Park – and there is even a forest (Almindingen) with an echo valley and roaming European bison.
