The 14 most interesting places to take photos on Bornholm

 

01Hammershus


The ruins of Hammershus Castle are worth visiting at different times of the day or year. Hammershus Castle looks beautiful both in winter when it is covered in snow, in the autumn sunshine or during sunset. The castle ruins are also an ideal place to take night photographs.

02 Opalsø


When in the Allinge - Sandvig area, a trip to Lake Opalsø and Hammersø is not to be missed. Lake Opalsø is one of the oldest quarries on the island and is definitely worth capturing in a photo. Taking pictures from below will show its unusual colour, while from above, from the surrounding high rocks you will capture a unique landscape with the ruins of Hammershus Castle in the background, or the neighbouring Hammerso Lake and the sea. This area is also one of the places to take night photographs.

03 Helligdomskipperne


Helligdomsklipperne (Holy Rocks) is located along the rocky coast between Tejn and Gudhjem near Kunstmuseum, and is considered one of the most beautiful viewpoints not only on Bornholm, but also in Denmark. From here you have a fantastic view of the Ertholmene archipelago. It's also worth taking a boat trip on the MS Thor from Gudhjem or going kayaking, as the pictures are fantastic from both land and sea.

Echo Valley - Ekkodalen in the Almindingen forest is the longest rift valley on the island (it is about 15 km long) and extends for about 2 km through the Almindingen forest. Nearby, in the buffalo forest, you may come across a herd of bison and take interesting photos. In the vicinity is the highest lookout point on Bornholm – Kongemindet tower, from where you can see the whole island.

05 Jons Kapel

06 Vang quarry


The Vang granite quarry is a place with unique nature, geology and many opportunities for outdoor activities. It is one of the most interesting places to get the best sunset photos. These are worth taking from deep in the quarry overlooking the bridge between the rocks with the setting sun in the background. New trails, a shelter with a picnic area, cycle paths and climbing walls have made the area ideal for outdoor activities.

08 Dueodde


Dueodde is one of the most beautiful and well-known beaches in Denmark and Europe. The sand on Dueodde beach is considered the most beautiful in the world. It is chalky white and silky soft. The high dunes overgrown with grass and heather, with the white beach and azure water in the background, not only invite you to relax but also to take wonderful photos. The characteristic, tall Dueodde lighthouse is also one of the most popular subjects for photos.

09 Lilleborg


The ruins of Lilleborg Castle are a great place for photographers interested in history as well as beautiful landscapes. The ruins are located on top of a 16-metre high cliff, above a pond in the middle of the Almindingen forest. Not only a photo of the ruins themselves can be interesting but also taken from them to the bridge and the lake will capture the wonderful landscape.

10Bokul


Coming to Gudhjem along the coast from the northwest, you will see an island rising evenly from the sea - „round rock”, shaped by ice during the last ice age. In the middle of the hill is a lookout point Bokul with a mast, 48 m above sea level, where the painter Oluf Høst experimented with paint colours when painting his pictures. Today, from this spot many tourists capture in their photos the magnificent view of the town of Gudhjem and the yachts and boats entering the harbour, as well as the island of Christiansø. But the most repeated and characteristic photo is the winding road. From this vantage point, we will also take beautiful pictures of the starry sky.

11Lion and camel heads


It is a rock formation at the foot of Hammershus Castle, resembling the heads of animals – a lion and a camel. It can be photographed both from the top of the hill and from the water level by kayaking up to it. The best pictures are taken at sunset.
