Bornholm and Christiansø offer no fewer than 27 harbours, so there are lots of harbours to choose between on a sailing holiday to Bornholm. You can decide to sail to the large harbours in Rønne and Nexø which are home to fishing boats and ferries, or you can try the small idyllic harbours to the north of Rønne, past Hammerknuden and south to Snogebæk. The neighbouring island of Christiansø, the Swedish east coast and the rest of the Baltic are also all within easy reach.
Typical Bornholm harbour
The typical Bornholm harbour is blasted out of the rocks and often characterised by the white smokery stacks rising up above a picturesque cluster of houses. However, you will also run into modern marinas with every facility, commercial harbours as well as Bornholm’s three special island harbours.
Take a trip to Christiansø
For sailors wanting to sail on holiday to Bornholm, you should certainly plan a trip to Christiansø, an island laying approximately 10 nautical miles north of Bornholm. Here you will find a charming natural harbour nestled between Christiansø and Frederiksø, and a small but bustling community of about 100 residents who all live in the listed buildings which are part of the extensive old fortifications. It’s not to be missed!
Lots to see and do within walking distance
Within a short distance of Bornholm’s harbours you will find lots of interesting things to see and do – whatever you choose, you are sure to have a memorable sailing holiday on Bornholm.
