Bornholm - the island in the middle of the southern Baltic Sea is ideal for cruise ships. The island is also called the "Pearl of the Baltic" - for its white and sandy beaches, high cliffs in the north, cosy and picturesque small fishing villages, unique and unspoilt nature, quality gourmet food, rich opportunities for outdoor sports, famous crafts and art and much more.
Bornholm is an island located in the Baltic Sea, right between Sweden, Poland and Germany. In the northern part of Bornholm the coastline is mainly rocky and very steep in places, while the south has white, tropical beaches. Bornholm also has more sunshine than the rest of Denmark. That is why it is called the "sunny island".
The ports are located in the towns of Rønne, Svaneke, Gudhjem and on the tiny islands of Christiansø and Frederiksø. The inhabitants of these towns and islands are friendly and welcome visitors. You can often explore the towns on your own or with a local guide - by bike, by bus or just walking around the old town.
Bornholm covers an area of 588 km2 and has 40,000 inhabitants. The currency is Danish kroner, but the euro and all other major currencies and credit cards are also widely accepted.
Several beautiful towns on Bornholm are popular destinations for cruise ships. The towns are quiet and peaceful, with small houses and charming streets, and a peaceful and idyllic atmosphere.
Bornholm has a rich medieval heritage, with churches and castles dating from 1100-1200.
The main industries have been agriculture and fishing, but tourism, which began in the early 1900s, is now the second largest industry, employing 2,000 people.
The last 15 years have seen a culinary revival on the island, resulting in one local restaurant being awarded a Michelin star, a number of high-end restaurants and many new local producers of quality food.
We organise Bornholm tours for organised groups and individuals. We have guides and bus companies who can take you around the island, you can rent bikes at many places or you can also use public transport with a day ticket.
