Best winter activities for kids and families on Bornholm

The Danish island of Bornholm might not be the first destination you may think of when choosing the familiy winter holiday – nevertheless, the island is a perfect place to travel to with kids. Experience medieval castle ruins and imagine how kings and soldiers lived here a long time ago.

What to do with your kids on your winter holiday

Have you ever seen a real-life buffalo (we call them bisons) close-up? Go for a walk in the “bison forest” in Almindingen forest and look for the herd of 15 bisons that have lived there since 2012. Don’t walk too close to them, as they might get scared.

You could also visit Pernille Bülow and make beautiful glass presents in one of their workshops. See our guide of things you can do on Bornholm this winter.

“When you come to Bornholm in winter, you can still go hiking – even with your kids. There are many routes that criss-cross each other and you can shorten them as you like!”
