Visit the exciting Vang Pier on Northern Bornholm. During 2011 Bornholms Regionskommune together with RealDania established the new Vang Pier at the old industrial harbour of the Vang Granite quarry.
Vang Pier – a harbour on an island
Vang Pier on the northwestcoast of Bornholm once was used as a harbour for the granite quarry, that existed here from the 1880s to 1996. In 2011 the Pier was increased and the profile itself was lowered to the niveau it has today. Vang Pier is a harbour on an island – which is why you have to cross a bridge in order to come to the harbour.
Vang Pier – også med lille sandstrand
The reshaping of Vang Pier was part of the projekt Mulighedernes Land (Land of the Possibilities), which works for finding potential in the municipal areas and outskirts of Denmark and strengthen them through new projects.
At the shelter of Vang Pier a new sandy beach has been established, which is also used during the annual Vang Pier Beach Party, which is arranged every year in July.
