Back from extinction
A blustery beauty
The sea is rougher here than in other parts of Denmark, making these beaches excellent water sports areas. If you’re looking for more child-friendly and family areas for swimming, try the coastal area around Limfjord.
There is a long tradition of delicious smoked fish on the island, particularly herring, mackerel and salmon. Many of the smokehouses are still in use with the characteristic chimneys and tempting smoked scent.
The rugged North
Try the old coast walking trails and cycling routes for fantastic views of the island. If you dive, there are many shipwrecks along Bornholm’s north and east coasts waiting to be explored.
Bornholm has a strong tradition of craft artisans, particularly within the fields of glass work and ceramics. You can visit open workshops all over the island and see the artisans in action at places such as Hjorth's Fabrik, Bornholm's Ceramics Museum in Rønne.
Produce from the source
Funen is a green and fertile island with many orchards producing not only wonderful fruit but also delicious juice. You can often buy farm produce directly from the source, at roadside booths, a particular characteristic of Funen.
