Enjoy your late summer with these 12 experiences on Bornholm

Here is why you should experience Bornholm in late summer.

In spring 2019 Bornholm was nominated to be one of the world’s best islands by the magazine Condé Nast Traveler. Judge yourself through these 12 late summer experiences on Bornholm.

Raw nature, fine sand beaches and unique outdoor possibilities

Bornholm’s unique nature has both a hint of Swedish archipelagos, the Icelandic rocky cliffs as well as bright white sandy beaches, like the ones at the Danish West Coast. Everything on one island in the Baltic sea. Visit Hammershus and the Opal Lake, the Hammer harbour and the new Stone Cutter Path. Try outdoor-experiences on mountain bike, rock climbing and bisonsafari – and finish the day with a tasty dinner at one of the Island’s high quality restaurants.

Bornholm is focussing on Arts and Crafts as well as Culture

Bornholm has a long tradition for high quality crafts. Visit the arts and crafts hall Grønbechs Gård in Hasle or some of Bornholms local artists and craftsmen, who will welcome you in their studios and galleries. Visit also Bornholms Drinks Festival and Bornholms Culture Week.
