gaarden / Bornholm House of Local Food Culture

In Denmark's first regional Food Culture House, you can learn more about Bornholm's cuisine. The building also serves as a gathering place for Bornholm's food producers.

Here you get to work yourself

Right next to the Agricultural Museum Melstedgård, you will find gaarden – House of Local Food Culture, where you can experience and learn about Bornholm’s culinary specialties. Gaarden is not a restaurant but a place where guests encounter both the historical food production and old kitchen traditions, as well as the modern flourishing Bornholm food culture – always with the ingredient, preparation, and socializing as focal points. You will “get to work” and prepare food under the expert guidance of the House of Local Food Culture’s experts and historians during various food courses.
