Rønne Things to Do

  • Lighthouse

    Inland and by the church, the unusual location for the lighthouse is easy to understand - the port is there, adjacent to town. It may be considered a landmark, since behind it unfolds the beautiful old Ronne's quarters.

  • Old Quarter

    What a difference when the sun shines!In my first two times in Ronne the weather was cloudy and rainy, and the city looked sad and cold. In my third presence the sun finnaly joined us, and everything became brighter. The colourful old quarter is very nice, quiet and clean, with flowers here and there adding some life to the scene. The quarter is...

  • The Post Office

    One of the larger old buildings in the old town centre is the beautiful mail post office. It is a large brick building with decoration and the seal of the island below the roof. In front is the little park and the square of Lille Torv.

    more
  • Lille Torv

    The second square is closer to the old town of Rønne and gives more of the old charm of the town. A park is situated in the middle of the square and the main post office is towards the end. Several cafes and shops surround the square.

    more
  • Store Torv

    The larges square in the city of Rønne is Store Torv. The square accommodates a large parking area and is lined by bars, restaurants and cafes as wells shops and banks. It is a good orientation point to the centre of town.

    more
  • The Lighthouse

    The lighthouse dating back to 1880 is close to the new modern port of Rønne. In the past when the port was less commercial this was the guiding light through the Baltic Ocean and to the entrance of the port of Rønne.

    more
  • Erichsens Gård

    Erichsens Gård is located in Laksegade. It is a museum consisting of a house and garden depicting an upper-class citizen’s home as it appeared in the last half or the 19th century. A great view into the daily life of people living on the island some 200 years ago.

    more

    The oldest building in Rønne is at Talbodgade 1 situated near the harbour and was originally constructed as a warehouse for storing provisions for the Royal Navy. The plank doors are believed to originate from Hammershus.

  • Hjorths Factory - Bornholm Ceramics...

    Yet another famous Bornholm house, this one with a ceramics workshop and various exhibitions and activities. Again, I have not had time to visit but only passed by the house once. Their website is in Danish only, but most of you should be able to see the opening hours under "Åbningstider" (closed Sundays apart from in July-August).

    more
  • Erichsen's Yard

    Also belonging to Bornholm Museums' collection, this is a nice old townhouse from 1806, showing you a bit of old Bornholm, including an interior from the second half of the 19th century and a nice garden. There is also a shop and they host plenty of cultural activities here. I hope to visit next time.

    more
  • Saint Nicholas Church

    The church you see when first approaching Rønne from the sea is this little pretty one from 1275, although what you see today is mainly from a 1915-18 reconstruction. It was never a main Bornholm church like the round churches or the Aa Kirke in Aakirkeby and not even the main Rønne church in medieval days so it is hard to find tourist information...

    more
  • Defence Museum

    Belonging to the Bornholm Museums exhibitions, this particular museum is dedicated to telling the story of Bornholm as occupied by the Germans and then bombed by the Russians during the last days of WWII.- Ihave not yet visited so I cannot give personal comments but had I had more time I would have visited as the Bornholm Museum itself temped me...

    more
  • Bornholm Museum

    As local museums go, this is one of the nicest I have visited and the only bad thing about it is the total lack of information in English. As with many things on Bornholm, it is geared for visitors from Scandinavia, Poland and Germany, so my English husband had to rely on what Danish he could understand from being a Swedish speaker. Nevertheless,...

    Ronne - Denmark

    by solopes Updated Dec 22, 2013

    I really do think that good eating starts in Paris, going south, getting the top in Portugal.

    (No, I'm not chauvinist, I know that until twenty years ago, Portugal was one of the worst countries in Europe to eat. But when we started to understand the potential of the Mediterranean food, the progress was fabulous. In taste, variety and healthiness, we are in the top, only presentation needing evolution.)

    Another problem that we feel in northern countries is... time. The day ends later in the south, and dinner is usually around eight, sometimes later (in Spain 10 or 11 is normal). I had big problems managing meals time in Denmark.

    The first of them right upon my arrival - the plane arrived past eight, and getting to my hotel, restaurant was closed. They suggested me to try Radisson, hundred meters apart, that used to close later, at 9 PM(!).

    I rushed there, arriving almost at closing time, decided to eat... something.

    Well, I had a very good stake, a good wine, served with gentleness, in what has been my best meal in Denmark.

    The price... well, who cares?

    Danish Beer

    by MikeAtSea Written Aug 7, 2007

    Danes produce a number of beer brands, the more renown are Tuborg and Carlsberg. In Danish if you order a beer you would order an Øl – not to be confused with oil. Though make sure you have enough change with you. I paid EUR 10 for a small beer during my stay in Rønne – alcohol is not cheap in Scandinavia!

The other internal line, to Kogen, takes more than 6 hours and is only made overnight. There are also lines to Poland and Germany.To go to Ystad you may do it by car (using the...

    The centre of the city is, as usual, dominated by commerce. I noticed no many restaurants, nor big malls.

    Things seem to rely in local commerce, though China is already there, as expected...

Rønne Warnings and Dangers

    Ronne - Denmark

    by solopes Updated Dec 22, 2013

    If you come from the south, like me, be careful about your meals' time.

    I arrived at Ronne's airport about 8.30 PM and almost lost dinner. My hotel's restaurant closed at 8.00 PM(?) and I had to run to Marriot, closing one hour later - I arrive 5 minutes before closing time and had a good expensive dinner.

    A few days later, in Nexo, I had trouble finding a restaurant at... 7.00PM.

    It's important to go up north to really appreciate our lively south, where you may eat almost 24 over 24 hours.

Rønne Favorites

  • Volumes

    One thing that pleased me in Ronne is the harmony in building's volumetry. A few examples of modern architecture combine well withe the traditional style and proportions of the houses. Colour helps to give a warm look, in a cold weather.

  • Danish Currency

    Even though Denmark is part of the European Union the country chose not to be part of the Euro monetary Union. Therefor when visiting Denmark you will still be paying with Danish Korner.

    more
  • Old Roenne

    Go for a stroll either around St Nicholas' Church on its hill or down the quarters north-west of the main square and you will be rewarded by lovely little streets with old houses full of roses in summertime.
