The local liquorice giant at Svaneke
The local liquorice giant is not a mythical creature (though that would be pretty cool). It’s Johan Bülow! You might have sampled his exquisite liquorice treats, Lakrids, which you can buy as far away as the USA. But it all started here. In 2007, Johan Bülow opened his first Lakrids store in the previously fishing-dependent village of Svaneke, now the ultimate place to satisfy your sweet tooth.
The smokehouse heroes of Bornholm
Bornholm once depended on its distinctive white-towered smokehouses and you can visit 10 of them still working today. The traditions of smoking fish have passed down from the very first smokehouse that opened on the island in 1866. Fish is smoked over the fragrant embers of alder wood fires and you can buy or taste from the experts themselves at the cafés and shops attached to the island’s smokehouses.
