Sandvig Things to Do

  • Hammeren

    I read about the interesting walk in the wild terrains of Hammeren and went there. Time was short, the female company was feeling too cold, and we went back. I saw nothing special, but... I concede: we didn't go THERE!

  • Tradition

    Smoking fish is the traditional activity in Bornholm. Most places are already treated to touristy display, but it is still possible to see some facilities from the time where the sights didn't mean a thing. Most of them abandoned, that's true, but still present.

  • Hammerhus

    The biggest medieval fortification of northern Europe is in Hammershus, close to Sandvig. Built in 13th century it is today a ruin, where we still may understand its conception, imagine the ramparts, and see the several defensive solutions in circles.

  • Beach

    Well... there's a beach, but only its memory makes me tremble...I understand why the nordic people, when they visit us, they stay so much time "grilling" in the sun, and why swimming in Algarve is good in November or March... for them!

  • Hammershus Castle

    Hammershus is the biggest medieval castle ruin in Scandinavia and very impressive, not least because of its magnificent setting on the top of a cliff overlooking the sea and the northern coastline. Sheep graze the surrounding fields (in this picture you see them and get an overview of the size of the complex) and in clear weather you can see across...

  • Moseloekken Quarry Museum

    We never had time to visit but I would really like to, as we cycled past another open quarry in the area and it means a lot to this corner of the island and to the building and decoration of many Danish towns. The exhibition here belongs to Bornholms Museum and is next to an open working stone quarry. The exhibition itself is in Moseløkkehus which...

  • Slotslyngen

    The "Castle Heather" forest is the forest connected to the medieval running of Hammershus in old days. Today, it is a part of the Danish Forestry Authority and quite well protected. You pass it when approaching Hammershus from the south and it is a nice area with a mix of coniferous and other forest which is often intercepted by heather moorland...

  • Hammeren

    Just north of Hammershus is the Hammeren peninsula with its famous lighthouse (you can just about make out its top by enlarging the picture). There is in fact another lighthouse and several trails to walk around here, including trails close to Sandvig village where you can walk around the two rather dramatic quarry lakes. Summertime, there are also...

Sandvig Restaurants

  • Sjalen's Profile Photo

    by Sjalen Updated Sep 1, 2005

    We walked past a very nice looking restaurant (on the intro page) which was closed and looked like it was a bit too smart for three dusty cyclists anyway. I also wanted to see the harbour, seaside girl as I am. We were not disappointed, as first, we found a street flea market with lots of fun things and then a hotel with a restaurant overlooking the sea. You could sit inside or in the street and when we were there, they had a band outside playing Irish folk music. In the cellar, there is a pool table and the atmosphere was somewhere between classy and down to earth Danish. They specialise in steaks of various kinds which makes it easy for the chefs who just have to be able to fry them and add different sauces and potato alternatives. You get free salad buffet with your main course and if you are a veggie you can get the buffet as main course which is not perfect but at least there is something and it comes with very nice bread. The wine list is nice and they serve Svaneke beers which is a plus. Our food was excellent but this seems to be a Sandvig speciality. Just down the road in the village centre is "Krølle Bølle" (named after a Bornholm troll) which does the same thing but cheaper as there is no seaview. No idea about their quality but ours were nice.

    Favorite Dish: Steak bearnaise with baked potato.
