Despite lying off the coast of Sweden in the Baltic Sea, Bornholm is actually not far from Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital. You can fly from here in just 35 mins or drive across our famous disappearing bridge to Sweden and take the ferry from Ystad to Rønne.
Bornholm’s not the kind of place to just sit back and watch the boats go by. Well… unless that’s what you fancy of course and then it really is. But for those of you looking for an island adventure, for ways to get Bornholm under your skin and the fresh smell of nature in your face, you need to get out into Bornholm’s spectacular scenery.
Did you know: Travel + Leisure nominated Bornholm as the world's best island in 2018!
In 2017 Bornholm became the first place in Europe to be designated a World Craft Region. At an old merchant’s house turned local gallery in Hasle, you can get up close to the textiles, pottery, art and glassware shaping the island’s vibrant creative culture and head on to meet the makers themselves.
Get a feel for the flow of local life on Bornholm through the lenses of people who've been there!
It might well be! This shack turned atmospheric restaurant nestled in the dunes of Bornholm's Dueodde Beach is an island highlight and a place to head if you think you deserve a treat.
