Enjoy Bornholm, the small Danish paradise for cyclists. Bornholm offers Scandinavian landscapes in miniature like a picture book. The complete island is subdued by bike paths. You cycle on bike trails along the coast line round the island. Only 40 km wide and 30 km long is Bornholm, but more varied than any other part of Denmark. Discover wonderful white beaches and dunes in the south and the wild granite cliffs in the north. The country is crossed by forests and heathens. On your bike you marvel at such important cultural treasures as the medieval castle ruins Hammershus or spectacular landscapes such as the Helligdomsklippen. Like pearls on a chain, Bornholm's picturesque towns and villages line up, almost all of them by the sea. They often shine in bright colors, showing a lot of half-timber and wonderful floral decoration.

Highlights

Rønne
The port town of Rønne is located in western Bornholm and is the capital of the island. Besides its beautiful old town Rønne has many attractions to offer. The Store Torv (the marketplace) is the lively center of the town and on both sides of the city beautiful beaches invite you to linger.

Rønne

Castle ruin Hammershus
The imposing castle ruins Hammershus is located on the northwestern tip of Bornholm on a cliff approx. 70 m above the sea. It is considered to be one of the largest castle ruins in northern Europe. Here you can experience the history of the island vividly.

Hammershus

Nature reserve Hammerknuden
The nature reserve at the northern tip of Bornholm invites with many hiking trails for a walk. Worth a visit the lighthouse Hammerfyr (also called Store Fyr), which offers a great view over the Baltic Sea. In the south of Hammerknuden (or Hammeren) you will find the medieval fortification Hammerhus. Worth seeing is the crystal lake on the plateau and the Opalsee with a 290 m long cable car as well.

Hammeren

Helligdomsklipperen
The Sanctuary Cliffs are one impressive rock formation. Weather and surf have built an impressive, rugged landscape of columns and grottos out of the massive Bornholm granite. Some caves are within walking distance, but there are also boat trips available. The entire coast is under nature conservation.

Helligdomsklippen

Gudhjem
The smallest town in Denmark is characterized by colorful gardens, steep streets and the typical red tiled roofs. It is considered to be one of the most beautiful and lively coast towns on Bornholm. Due to its variety of old half-timbered houses and the harbor its is one of the most popular resorts on the island.
