Temperatures on Bornholm do not vary as much as in the continental climate. The difference between the average summer and winter temperature is the only 22°C. This is also due to the heat front of the Baltic Sea. The warmest months are July and August. Although the average daily temperature during these months is 20 ° C, the thermometer can easily rise above 30 ° C.
Bornholm receives less rainfall than the rest of Denmark. Most are in the autumn and winter months. Summers are rather dry. The highest number of rainy days is in winter. This also explains why Bornholm has the most snow in Denmark. During the record winter of 2010, the whole island was covered in snow for weeks. Because of the sea wind, the weather on Bornholm can change quickly.
Due to the slow warming of the Baltic Sea, water temperatures are very low in spring, around 7 ° C. It is not until the end of May when the temperature exceeds 10°C that you can speak of a water temperature suitable for swimming. In midsummer and late summer, it rises to 20°C near the beach and lasts until September. The bathing season on Bornholm is statistically one month longer than in the rest of Denmark. In winter the temperature of the Baltic Sea does not drop below zero 0 ° C.
Humidity is distributed throughout the year similar to rainfall. Spring is the driest season, it increases slightly in summer and is highest in winter.
The weather on Bornholm is relatively cool in the summer but mild in the winter, which is typical of a temperate maritime climate with mostly sunshine and little precipitation. The Baltic Sea as a heat accumulator ensures that there is hardly ever a hard freeze in winter.
In spring, on the other hand, the water warms up very slowly, which means that spring starts here about 10 days later than on the mainland. In summer there are no high temperatures because the Baltic Sea cools the island.
The best time to visit Bornholm is in July and August. However, it is difficult to predict the vagaries of the weather and guarantee a similarly warm summer every year.
The island has for decades been called - not without reason - 'Majorca of the North' and 'Sunny Island'. These opinions are also confirmed by the fig and mulberry trees, which feel great in this climate and ripen beautifully here.
