Discover the Danish Island Bornholm this winter

In the middle of the Baltic Sea, you will find Bornholm.

Watch the waves against the steep cliffs and enjoy beautiful walks along the white sandy beaches and twisted cliff paths.

How about enjoying the old towns’ cosy atmosphere and visiting the island’s many exciting museums? Enjoy the island’s nice cafes and restaurants, where you can taste Bornholm’s specialities and get in the Christmas spirit at Bornholms Christmas Market in Nexø, where you can also do your Christmas shopping.
