Bornholm, Denmark

Bornholm, Denmark

Where?

Bornholm, Denmark.

Why now?

Copenhagen
has held the spotlight as a top city break for quite some time, but
this island town floating in the Baltic Sea just off of the coast
of Denmark and Sweden provides quiet respite from mainland Scandi
cities.


Don’t miss

Dueodde, a beach on the southernmost point of Bornholm, has a
striking combination of fine white sand and emerald pine trees. A
lighthouse offers endless views, and you might stumble across a
disused gun battery while exploring the forest.

When to go?

June
and July
tend to be the warmest months, with an average high of 20 degrees.
But the striking colours during autumn make the colder temperatures
worthwhile. September
and October
will give you moody beach mornings and crunchy autumn leaves to
stroll through.


Who to take with you?

A creative friend looking for inspiration.

Most likely to bump into…

Insouciant beachcombers and a chef smoking fish outside.


Essentials to bring with you

A hat and gloves for the chilly temperatures and an appetite for
seafood.

How to get there

A 30-minute flight from Copenhagen will drop you off Rønne, the
largest town on the island. If you’re feeling a bit more
adventurous, a catamaran ride from Ystad in Sweden will get you
there in an hour and 20 minutes.
