Vacation rentals on Bornholm

Fabulous residences not far from the coast

White sandy beaches, romantic bays and wild dunes in front of green forest landscapes are a wonderful environment for bathers, active holidaymakers or those seeking relaxation. In the south near Dueodde you live along the eight kilometre wide Dueodde beach in a cosy vacation rental or bungalow, which is surrounded by pine trees, particularly idyllic and far from the hustle and bustle. Shimmering granite rocks and the vastness of the Baltic Sea await you in the vacation rentals of the northern bathing bay in Sandwig. Alternative seaside resorts can be found in Svaneke, Melsted or in the bay of Balka south of Nexø.

Dreamlike accommodations in the former fishing villages

With the exception of the town of Aakirkeby, which is located in the flat farmland, the larger municipalities of the island are situated directly on the sea and shine in maritime flair. In an environment of medieval half-timbered houses and small harbours that were used for fishing centuries ago, you will live in picturesque places such as Gudhjem, Hasle or Rønne. In your holiday apartment you benefit from short footpaths to the beach and within walking distance of shops and restaurants.

Location and orientation

Danish Baltic Sea Island

About 80 kilometres northeast of Rügen and 150 kilometres southeast of Sweden, the island of Bornholm with its six small side islands extends over an area of 588.30 square kilometres as the easternmost part of Denmark. Bornholm is part of the Hovestaden region with almost 40,000 inhabitants. The largest municipalities on the island are Rønne in the west, Nexø in the east and Aakirkeby in the central south.

Geological features

With a north-south extension of 40 kilometres and an east-west extension of 30 kilometres, the island has 158 kilometres of coastline, which presents itself in a varied natural setting. Breathtaking beaches, dunes, cliffs and hills of forests and heath characterise Bornholm's landscape.

Travelers and Activities

Pleasure for young and old

Bornholm is a great destination for families who want to enjoy their time in the midst of a quiet environment, all year round. The most beautiful bathing places, where the water is gently sloping, where there is no strong surf and where the water quality is high and there is sufficient shade, are located at Dueodde beach and in Sømarken. Here you can rent an attractive apartment or a spacious vacation rental not far from the Baltic Sea. But there are also numerous leisure activities away from the water. Cultural-historical experiences await families in the Agricultural Museum, where the life of the 18th and 19th centuries is portrayed between horses and cows. Animal entertainment is offered to families in the butterfly park Nexø or the fascinating bird of prey show in Nyker. Other attractions include the climbing park near Gudhjem and the Brændesgårdshaven leisure park near Svaneke.

Sportingly active on Bornholm

The varied nature of the island provides ideal conditions for a wide range of activities on land and water. Bornholm is regarded as a cycling-friendly region and offers pleasure cyclists a 200 kilometre wide network of paths. The longest route of 105 kilometres is the National Circuit No. 10, which runs once around the entire island. As a golf holidaymaker you will find in Rønne, Nexø and Rø unique 9- or 18-hole-courses of the golf clubs which are embedded in nature. During the winter months, the up to 250-meter-long ski slopes between Gudhjem and Østerlars provide a true curiosity in the natural environment of the Baltic Sea. In summer the sea offers a wide range of water sports. Sailors enjoy the perfect winds to glide on their boats to Sweden, Rügen or the Baltic States. The Balka and Duoedde beaches are popular hotspots for surfers and kiters. To experience the breathtaking underwater world of the Baltic Sea, you can visit the diving school in Rønne and meet sunken shipwrecks, underground grottos or colourful schools of fish.

On Bornholm only four larger mammal-types exist with hedgehogs, hares, deer and bison in the wild with hedgehogs.

Top 5 travel tips

Ols Church
Ols Church
Art on the Heiligdom Cliffs

Between Gudhjem and Tejn there is the Bornholm Art Museum in picturesque surroundings. In harmony with nature, the building of modern architecture was erected directly on the sanctuary spring, whose water flows through the premises. On around 4,000 square metres of exhibition space, visitors can admire works of art and paintings from various eras. In addition, the museum maintains close contacts with the glass and ceramics school in Nexø, whose graduation works are dedicated to a separate exhibition.

Catapulted into times gone by

Near Østerlars, guests of all ages are taken into the world of the 11th to 14th centuries in Bornholm's medieval centre. On the 15 hectare wide area numerous houses are based on the historical originals. The area includes a pottery, a smithy, a water mill and stables for the animals. Highlights are the shooting demonstrations, show fights and regular show evenings.

Oldest castle ruin in Northern Europe

In the northwest of the island, the imposing castle complex of the ruin Hammershus, which had an important defensive function in the 12th century, is enthroned on a 74 meter high cliff. Behind the 750 metre long fortress wall there is a mighty fortified tower, a square gate tower, an inner courtyard and two outer courtyards. At the foot of the complex a small exhibition informs about the history of the castle, its heyday and the everyday life of the former inhabitants.

Exploration of the Pea Island

Northeast of Bornholm, the Ertholmene archipelago is a popular excursion destination. Once a day a small passenger ship departs from Gudhjem harbour and takes passengers to Christiansø. Worth seeing on the inhabited island are the Christian V fortress, built in 1684, and the Græsholmen bird sanctuary.

Legacy of the Second World War

At the southern tip of the island, hidden in the pine forests near Dueodde, there is an impressive bunker of the German cannon battery. The location of Bornholm was used by the Wehrmacht as a spying place for Soviet war fleets. In addition to the cannons and the machine part of the facility, you can visit the remains of the crew quarters, the kitchen or the sanitary facilities. The Nexø Museum in Rønne also provides information about Bornholm's role during the Second World War.
