Winter on Bornholm does not mean that everything is closed. Well, it's more quiet on Bornholm, but it gives you plenty of time to discover the island at your own pace.

Here are our 10 tips for your winter holiday on Bornholm

Nature is always open - and the Bornholm nature is so unique that you should definitely experience it. We also have suggestions for indoor activities.


Take a walk along Bornholm's northern tip

Hammerknuden - or just Hammeren - is a very special nature area. Experience the raw rocky coast, the old granite breach and the unique view of the Baltic Sea.


Enjoy northern Europe's largest castle ruins and the view of the Baltic Sea

Hammershus is North Europe's largest medieval castle. The castle offers you a great view of the Baltic Sea and in clear weather all the way to the Swedish coast. You can also enjoy the view from the rooftop terrace of the new Hammershus visitor center.


Churches don't have to be square

On Bornholm you can visit four of the seven round churches in Denmark. Østerlars round church is the largest of them. The churches originated from the Middle Ages.


Buy traditional ceramics

In Rønne you will find the soon-to-be 160 years old and traditional Hjorths Fabrik - Bornholms keramikmuseum, where you can still buy the factory's fine ceramics today.



Rispebjerg - a large place, that looks more like a field than anything else, is one of Bornholms most interesting places. It has a history that dates back at least 5000 years, when the place was used for ritual offerings within a sun cult - and you will also find the last remainders of an old castle.


Experience over 3000 years old rock carvings

Bornholm is without a doubt the place in all of Denmark, where most rock carvings have been found in such a small area. A great place to see the carvings is Madsebakke at Allinge Stadium.
