Culinary experiences on Bornholm

Bornholm is known for its rich culinary heritage. The island offers a wealth of dining experiences ranging from fine dining in gourmet restaurants to cosy cafés and traditional smokehouses. Bornholm’s culinary scene combines local traditions with modern gastronomy, making it a must for food lovers.

Local ingredients and specialities on Bornholm

Bornholm’s cuisine is strongly influenced by the island’s local ingredients and long-standing culture of smoking and salt curing. Bornholm’s unique location in the Baltic Sea means it has a milder climate than the rest of the Nordic region, with many hours of sunshine. Spring and summer are drier and late summer is warmer. This yields a wide variety of ingredients such as mulberries and figs, all flavoured by the island’s soil and fresh sea air – the very taste of Bornholm.

The island’s chefs pride themselves on using fresh, locally grown produce such as potatoes and cabbage, and many restaurants grow their own herbs or forage for them in the wild. Bornholm meat and freshly smoked fish are also on the menu. This focus on local ingredients ensures that the dishes are both fresh and flavourful.

The Bornholm smokehouse: a unique experience

The characteristic smokehouse chimneys can be seen throughout the Bornholm landscape. In the old days Bornholm had over 100 active smokehouses, and today the island has 10 that continue to keep the ancient art alive.

You can enjoy delicious smoked herring, salmon and trout, child-friendly fishcakes and other wonderful smoked delicacies. Several of the smokehouses have a restaurant attached, so you can choose to eat the freshly-smoked fish right there, enjoy it out in the beautiful Bornholm nature or take it home with you.
