Bornholm might not be one of the first destinations that will pop up in your mind, when searching for a winter holiday destination in Europe. But the Danish island in the Baltic Sea, not that far from Copenhagen, with its famous medieval castle ruins, with its unspoiled and unique nature, as well as the many craftsmen, is a perfect place for a winter getaway. You can choose from a large variety of activities – enjoy outdoor sports, a tasty gourmet dinner, famous arts & crafts and real Danish “hygge”.
Reykjavík, London, Mallorca – Bornholm has a lot in common with these destinations. You’ll find long sandy beaches with some of the finest sand in Europe, go hiking on coastal paths that lead you through harsh, raw and unspoiled nature and offers you a breathtaking view over the Baltic Sea and the coast of Sweden on top of it – and you can enjoy a tasty gourmet dinner for two in one of Bornholms restaurants. See our guides further down.
Coming to terms with the more practical information around your winter holiday on Bornholm – you can fly to Copenhagen and from there travel by car, bus, ferry or plane to Bornholm. There are several car rental offices on the island. Some of the hotels on the island also offer winter holiday packages and will also give you hints and ideas for what to do on Bornholm.
“Bornholm, less than an hour’s flight from Copenhagen, fascinates the Danes. But the rest of the world is also eager to discover its landscapes, craftsmanship and creativity. Paradis at your fingertips.”
