Experience the big harbour on Eastern Bornholm.
Nexø Harbour is the biggest fishery harbour on Bornholm and is located right in the centre of Nexø. All types of Baltic fish are landed here – from sprat to big wild salmon.
The port still has a large shipyard and service companies providing all types of repairs, as well as a boating-equipment shop. Visiting yachters are welcome along the 2870 metres of the quayside, which provides plenty of space for visiting pleasure craft of all sizes. The three northernmost harbour basins, along with the old dry dock, comprise the only major port in Denmark built of sandstone, which is the bedrock from which the harbour was blasted. In summer, there is a daily passenger ferry service to Poland.
Nexø is the second-largest town on Bornholm and features a wide selection of grocery and speciality shops, an active herring smokehouse, cafés and restaurants.
The town also has a museum of cultural history, as well as the memorial rooms of author Martin Andersen Nexø. A week of jazz is held every summer.
Nexø also features interesting localities, such as the Glass and Ceramics Workshop Bornholm, the Butterfly Park, and a sculpture park on the way to Stenbrudssøen (quarry lake), stocked with fish for freshwater angling. Just north of the quarry, it is possible to straddle 1.1 billion years of history across the Fenno-Scandic fault line: with the sandstone bedrock of southern Europe under one foot and the granite bedrock of northern Europe under the other.
