Bornholm, Denmark

The 587 square kilometre Danish island of Bornholm lies in the middle of the Baltic Sea. Its geologically diverse landscape combines features found on close neighbours Sweden, Finland and Denmark. Embark on one of our cruises to Bornholm and you can explore craggy bedrocks in the north, white sand beaches and sand dunes in the south.

Amongst farms and forests, fortresses and fishing villages sit Bornholm's four 'round churches', which are an integral part of the island's image. Another highlight of all Bornholm cruises is the 13th century fortress Hammershus, largest medieval castle ruins in northern Europe which stands on the northwestern tip. Numerous bronze-age monoliths and rock carvings and the castle-like tower of A-Kirke church also hold historic interest.

On a Bornholm cruise you can also visit the small but lively capital of Ronne for its many shops and several interesting museums, and be charmed by the many small fishing villages, famous for their fresh-smoked herring, that slumber peacefully for most of the year, but come alive during the summer months with live music and entertainment.
