About Dr. Manfred and Gertrude Richter-Reichhelm
Since 1976 we are enthusiastic Bornholmers. A holiday trip to this beautiful island has enchanted us. Time and again we have travelled to Bornholm, and when in 1997 the opportunity arose to take over the old family pension Bølshavn, we didn’t take much time to think.We, that is:
Gertrude Richter-Reichhelm is a Danish lady (born in Aarhus), has been living in Berlin since 1965 and speaks of course both languages - Danish, and German - perfectly. When the three children were grown up, she has distinguished herself as a 'Doll Doctor' and ambitious collector of old German character dolls, and you will notice that today in the ambience of the house. Since 1997, she is the patron of the pension Bølshavn and makes a perfect hostess for a homely atmosphere in your holiday home.
Dr. Manfred Richter-Reichhelm, her husband, is a doctor, had as a urologist with a partner, a doctor’s office in Berlin and was active for many years in healthcare policy. Now retired, he has moved his centre of life to Bornholm during summer months. And carries out other popular work here: Hotel management, garden maintenance and on special occasions - cooking and baking.
Dr. Manfred and Gertrude Richter-Reichhelm purchased this house in 1997
Why Dr. Manfred and Gertrude Richter-Reichhelm chose Svaneke
We are not aware of a more beautiful location than the Aparthotel Bølshavn 9! This wonderfully located property was at the beginning of the last century, originally a farmhouse, built in the typical U-shape of the three buildings. It was later converted into a pension with many small rooms, and after acquisition, we first renovated each year floor by floor and made 5 rooms out of all 17 rooms : convenience and comfort and above all personal individual attention, that was and is our motto.
Later, the old barn additionally became a holiday home (Die alte Butik), and in 2005 a new building, 'Das kleine Haus'. The recent change was in 2012: either the three or two rooms in each of the two floors of the hotel are individually rented or floor wise as a holiday domicile, which has its own kitchen. The restaurant was closed and made as our manager’s apartment. Likewise our old apartment was free and was made as a holiday apartment 'Swallow's nest'.
And thus, from the original 'Pension Bølshavn ' emerged the present 'Aparthotel Bølshavn 9'.
What makes this house unique
What makes this holiday complex distinctive is the indescribably beautiful location with the gentle slope to the Baltic Sea, just opposite to Christiansø. The park-like garden, the old trees, especially our more than one hundred year old mulberry tree (our logo), the peace and the spacious expanse of the plot: that makes Bølshavn 9 as one of the most beautiful properties of Bornholm. Many of our guests sit with a book on a deck chair in the garden and enjoy the sun and peace. Here there is no hustle and bustle, here you can 'let your souls dangle'.
