On the northern coast of Bornholm you can find Tejn Harbour – host of the annual Trolling Master Bornholm.
Tejn harbour is one of the sunshine island’s major harbours with an interesting blend of commercial and recreational activities.
The port is visited every year by some 4,500 trolling boats for Trollingmaster Bornholm, a four-day competition to catch the biggest salmon. Apart from the trolling competition, the port has plenty of space for visiting yachters, who are welcome in all basins.
The port has a large slipway, shipyard, ship engine and electrical workshop, sail maker’s, boating-equipment shop, and the island’s only diesel and petrol station with card payment, right on the quay.
The port offers almost everything that a visiting yachter might need: a supermarket, speciality shops and eateries. Tejn even has its very own microbrewery, Penyllan, which also makes a natural craft beer and offers guided tours to enrich your knowledge of the art of brewing.
This is also where the first sod has been turned for a large archaeological centre to be housed in former fishery industry buildings on the waterfront. There are good places to bathe in the Baltic along the waterfront, supplemented, if you prefer, by an outdoor hot tub or a woodfired sauna.
It is possible to barbecue your dinner at one of the port’s barbecue grills while enjoying the lovely views of the rocky coastline. The Port of Tejn is the closest harbour to the Bornholm Art Museum, the gourmet restaurant Stammershalle Badehotel and the famous Rø Golf Course whose fairways transect the rocky Bornholm landscape.
To the north, one of the island’s loveliest paths winds its way along the rocky coast to Allinge, about Five kilometres away.
