The tower were actually build to defend the the harbour that used to be the Baltic Sea base for the Danish fleet.They have a big collection of weapon and other exhibits from the military period, but have also old fishing equipment and a collection of old medical instruments.On the...more
They serve good Danish food - mostly seafood. The menu changes with the season and I have only been very satisfied (Have only eaten 2 times there)
Favorite Dish: Last time I got a very nicely decorated fried plaice with boiled potatoes.
When I was there last summer we were sitting in the local pub having a beer (same building as the hotel) and suddenly 3 men sat down and played their instruments and some young locals started to dance - - so things happens very spontaneously.
I have heard that the locals have a meeting house on Frederiksø called "Månen" (The moon) where they sometimes have a big party.
The only way to visit Christiansø is by boat. From Svaneke the postboat sails every day to the islands.From Gudhjem in the summerseason two boats are sailing to the islands. You are allowed to stay for three hours on the islands.Cats and dogs are not allowed!!!From Gudhjem the trip take about an hour. In the summerseason it can be very busy in the...more
From Gudhjem there is one boat departure every day at 10:00 in the low season (May and September). In the high season (June, July and August) there's many departures starting at 10:00. From Allinge there's fewer departures - look at the timetable on the website.Remember not to miss the last boat going back to Gudhjem or Allinge in case you haven't...more
In the southern part of Frederiksø there's some old canon boat shacks where you can buy "Ruth's Kryddersild" (Ruth's Marinated Herrings). They are produced on the island and is a Danish speciality. Try them on a slice of rye bread together with a little cold Aquavit (snaps)After opening the container you can keep them for one year. You can have 3...more
In May a lot of birds is having eggs and sit on their nest on the ground so take care and dont go too close to the nests.
There's a lot of Eider nests on the ground and the female has very good camouflage colors so you dont see it until you almost step on it - it is very still and will not move.
A lot of other sea birds will make a lot of noise and try to scare you if you come near their nest or young ones.
On the west side of Frederiksø there's a little bathing jetty for going swimming. We considered going swimming there but there were too much algae in the water - not so nice.
Instead we went over to the east side of Christiansø and there we found some good cliffs to sit on and to jump in the water from.
I had a swim to some small rocks "Østerskær" 2-300m east of the coast - must be the absolutely most eastern point of Denmark.
If you plan to stay overnight you need to plan long time in advance. There's not many rooms in the hotel, and the campground is very small.
It is very interesting staying overnight on the island because then you really get to meet the locals after all the other tourists have taken the boat back to Bornholm.
