Bornholm is a quiet island in the Baltic Sea and the easternmost point of Denmark. Located halfway between the Swedish and Polish coasts, the island of Bornholm has many sunshine hours and the quality of its light attracts many artists. Bornholm has a a varied scenery – the island is mountainous, green and fertile with unlimited fields. It is in fact the only place in Denmark with a high and rocky coast. Bornholm also has many white beaches and is an ideal island for biking or hiking.

DAY 2

Island Tour with your own Private Guide and Driver (10:00-15:00)

We will visit Hammershus, the largest medieval fortification in Northern Europe built in the 13th century. It was long believed that the castle was built as a private residence for the archbishop of Lund. However, new evidence suggests that it was built as the royal residence of Valdemar II of Denmark and as a base for Danish crusaders. We will also visit the Round Church in Østerlars, built around 1160 and the largest of the four round churches on the island of Bornholm, as well as the villages of Gudhjem and Svaneke. During the excursion, we will enjoy a delicious fish buffet in Gudhjem.
