The Medieval Centre of Bornholm is a historical visitor centre that nestles beautifully in the hills just a few hundred metres from Østerlars Round Church. Something new is added to the centre every year, and it now includes a unique manor.

See, smell and touch medieval scenes
The Medieval Centre of Bornholm gives you a living, sensory experience by letting you see, smell and touch medieval scenes involving people, animals, houses, a watermill and a fortified rampart. Try out some of the foot soldier’s equipment on the rampart, shoot a bow and arrow, and, at set times, hear a cannon and harquebus being fired. Everyday life is as realistic as possible and the reality also includes working craftsmen and peasants going about their chores.
