The Danish island of Bornholm might not be the first destination that pops up for your winter holiday with your family – nevertheless the island is a perfect place for you to travel to with your kids. See medieval castle ruins and try to imagine, how kings and soldiers lived here a long time ago.
Visit also one of the four roundchurches, where people in ancient times were seeking shelter for enemies. In one of the curches you can actually go up to the attic and have the same view, that the guards had.
Have you ever seen a real buffalo (we also call them for bison) close-up? If not, you could go for a walk in the “bison forest” in the large Almindingen forest and look for the herd of around 15 bisons, that have lived here since 2012. But don’t walk to close to them, they might get scared.
And how about a walk along one of Bornholms long and sandy beaches on a cold and windy winter day? Afterwards you can reward yourselves with a cup of hot chocolate and a good board game at your holiday home. You could also visit Lilli’s Glasdesign and make beautiful glass presents in one of their workshops.

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