Make a holiday home in Gudhjem your home away from home

A holiday in Bornholm North promises holidaymakers exciting cultural experiences and the sight of stunning ruins that date back centuries. This locale also boasts a coastline dotted with unique rock formations and its hinterland is covered in massive forests and green plains. Another key attraction the island of Bornholm offers visitors is long hours of sunshine. The dazzling quality of the light there brings out rich colours from the landscape and artists have long been drawn to this location for this reason. Holiday homes in Gudhjem provide visitors with lavish accommodation close to the picturesque shores of the Baltic. HomeAway has superbly furnished apartments and homes decorated with contemporary touches, made to cater to the needs of different travellers. Some of these Gudhjem holiday rentals come with swimming pools and other features to guarantee guests total relaxation.

Things to do

-Ancient ruins: For a glimpse into Bornholm’s glorious past visitors need to make the trip to the northernmost tip of the island to see the Hammershus Castle. Though time has claimed huge chunks of the 12th century structure, enough of its walls and walkways remain to give a clear idea of how the full building looked. It is a symbol of ancient battles between Sweden and Denmark with the Danes recapturing it several times after it was taken.

-Round churches: Those booking holiday homes in Gudhjem will no doubt want to lay eyes on Bornholm’s famous round churches which also served as defensive fortresses. This is why they were built so high and with very high walls. The oldest of these four edifices is Oskirke which is found on Bornholm’s north coast. It initially had a flat roof, not the conical 15m roof seen today. This allowed inhabitants to look out for intruders as well as have a vantage point from which to shoot at them. Osterlars Rundkirke is the largest of these cylindrical, whitewashed churches.

-Museums: Gudhjem holiday home residents won’t have to leave the town to visit the Kustmuseet Art Museum which boast a collection of works be renowned artist Oluf Host. Indeed, Gudhjem was at some point in time home to an artist colony who were drawn by the unique light enjoyed by this island. The works of these artists, who began migrating here from the early 19th century can be seen in the Bornholms Kuntsmuseum, a beautifully designed, wonderfully lit structure.

-Outdoor activity: Visitors can take advantage of the gorgeous summer conditions to take boat trips along Bornholm’s coastline to Helligdommen. Boats are available at the Gudhjem harbour. Hiking or biking through Almindingen, a dense forest, is also a worthwhile experience. It is during this trip that one will encounter the Echo Valley or Ekkoladen and be able to savour spectacular panoramas from the Rytteknaegten observation tower.

-Gastronomy: Gudhjem’s importance to Denmark’s fishing industry is clearly depicted by the smokehouses that are found there. This is where herring, eel, mackerel and other types of fish are smoked for preservation. There are a number of eateries where visitors can be served ‘Sol over Gudhjem’ a popular delicacy which is essentially a sandwich with smoked herring and other ingredients.

Weather in Gudhjem

Gudhjem’s mild weather is what one will find in most other parts of Denmark. Summers are moderately warm with average highs topping off at 20°C. So even those who plan to be in their Gudhjem holiday homes in July or August should not expect the kind of scorching conditions found in Mediterranean destinations. Chances of rainfall in August are high as this is typically Gudhjem’s wettest month.

Cable/satellite TV with good access to services. Only hiccup was that we found no linen for beds or towels on arrival. Owners quickly sorted this when we called them (despite it being late evening). You probably need a car - although we did rent cycles (very close by) and didn't use our car at all for 3 of the 7 days. 'Mobile' bakery comes to the adjacent hamlet each morning from 7.30 - 9.30. Also in the hamlet is a 'pub' with food served too. The weather was kind despite it being late September, and the cycling is easy and very pleasant. The towns/villages are small but interesting, and very easy going. The beaches are tremendous. All in all we had a really great time.
