Things to do
-Cultural experience: A trip to this part of Denmark is a chance to experience authentic Danish culture. From centuries past, Denmark has always produced a crop of gifted artists and artisans and they can be seen at work during open workshop visits. The works of renowned artists who migrated to this Baltic island from the end of the 19th century can be seen at the Bornholm Art Museum. For a taste of Bornholm’s musical culture Nexoe holiday home residents can travel north to take part in the annual jazz festival.
-Historic buildings: Also giving a glimpse into Bornholm’s past are the iconic round white churches that served as both places of worship and fortresses. Two of these churches, Nyker and Nylars, are found in Rønne while the other two; Olsker and Osterlars, are found towards the north of the island. If they travel to the northernmost tip of Bornholm, holidaymakers will get to see the ruins of the Hammershus Castle, northern Europe’s largest fortification.
-Beaches: A visit to Bornholm gives tourists the chance to enjoy some sun and sand by the Baltic. Among the more popular beaches on the island is Balka which features kilometres of fine sands good for leisurely promenades. Dueodde Beach is also heavily frequented by sun-seeking tourists. Its clean, clear waters are great for a dip, though the temperatures may not always be inviting.
-Outdoor activities: There are a number of water sports that are available at Bornholm’s beaches apart from swimming. The winds sweeping across the Baltic are conducive for surfing and those who fancy a sail around the island are welcome to hire boats from the harbour. Heading inland holidaymakers will want to hire bikes to cycle through the lush green landscapes. They could also challenge themselves to hike through Almindigen Forest’s rocky terrain.
-Food and drink: Several smokehouses offer Bornholm’s smoked herring speciality. Bornholm has a long tradition of smoked fish with herring, mackerel and salmon being the mainstays on the menu here. This smoked fish is used in such tantalising dishes as the Sun over Gudhjem. Foreign dishes can also be found in a number of Bornholm restaurants like the Restaurant Aeblehaven. This is where you can order Thai specialities and choose from a healthy wine list to help your meal down.
