Although summer has ended and the landscape is slowly changing colours to yellow and orange, Bornholm still has many events and activities for families with children both in the towns and out in nature.
The late summer on Bornholm is usually mild. The summer sun has warmed the island’s rocks and the Baltic Sea, so the climate on Bornholm is milder than in the rest of Denmark.
On this page, we have collected our suggestions for some good family-friendly experiences on Bornholm right now.
A trip to Bornholm does not have to be expensive. The journey from Copenhagen only takes three hours if you drive over the Øresund Bridge to Ystad and take the fast ferry. You can get the ferry tickets from just 99 DKK incl. car + 5 people.
It is also possible to take the direct ferry from Køge on Zealand, or perhaps it is easiest for you to take the ferry from Sassnitz on Rügen in Germany to Rønne. The sailing trip from Germany takes only 3 hours and 20 minutes, with the modern ferry Hammershus. There are several weekly departures throughout the autumn, and the price here starts at 699 DKK for a car + 5 people.
In week 42, there is officially an autumn holiday on Bornholm. This week offers a lot of experience for families with children on Bornholm.
Pumpkins roll through the streets, and the witches take over the towns and spread fear and terror together with the many spiders that swarm from cracks, nooks, and crannies – experience fun and spookiness when several Bornholm towns celebrate Halloween. We collect the biggest events here as they become available, so please keep an eye on the site.
