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.more
Used to have dinner at 8 PM (9 in Bornholm) I had trouble in Nexo. Trying to have dinner not too early, which means after 7PM, I discovered that the few restaurants found in town were closing before that. It was almost a miracle, finding a place just about to close, decided to serve something. I understand that the weather makes the day end early...more
The island of Bornholm is a cycling paradise. All around the island one can find plenty of cycling paths that are separated from the normal roads. There are shops available to hire bicycles and at the tourist information centres one can purchase maps with an overview of all cycle paths.more
Several times in Bornholm I made myself the question: "What do this people for living"?Well, I think that for most of them the answer is... artwork. Sculpture, ceramic and glass artifacts are everywhere, and in Svaneke it seems to be door after door. Who will be buying so many things?more
It was September (still a good month to the beach in Portugal), and Sonia was prepared to swim. The rough sea made that impossible, but she was decided to at least, wet her feet.

I had been recommended a pit stop here by a colleague who is local and she was not wrong. Homemade chocolate is their speciality but there are also other goodies such as coffee. The chocolate pralines often comes as truffle-like concoctions with orange, mint etc. and children might prefer the white chocolate dolphins...The Kjaerstrups (or rather Ms...more
I have to stress that I have German family and nothing against Germans! However, at Dueodde they really dominate, even compared to the rest of Bornholm. As you can see in this picture, even the newspaper racks ARE German despite being in Denmark, and on our campsite, our daughter was the only non-German speaking child in the playground, I was...more
Near the bus stop at Dueodde, and seen from great parts of the beach itself, is the famous lighthouse. As lighthouses come, this is quite a narrow one and not as impressive as some. However, you see a good deal of southern Bornholm and the Baltic Sea if you climb to its top for a few crowns. It's usually open until just befor dusk.more
