Discover the Danish Island Bornholm this winter

In the middle of the Baltic Sea, you will find Bornholm. The winter nights can be cold, quiet and clear here, but winter is the best time to discover the island’s authenticity: Go outside and watch the high waves against the steep cliffs and visit some of the many interesting museums on the island.

Or grab a book, snuggle under a cosy blanket on the sofa in your rented summer house – and dive into the horrifying world of Nordic Noir.
