Apart from its dreamy beaches, Bornholm also has many sights to offer. Numerous enchanting places are worth a visit, for example, Svaneke in the East of the island. The medieval harbour town is well preserved and is characterised by colourful half-timbered houses – it wasn’t voted the most beautiful town in Denmark for nothing! To the north is the imposing Hammerhus Castle, one of Bornholm’s main attractions: the impressive 12th century castle ruins are enthroned on a cliff 74 metres above sea level and can be seen from afar on the otherwise largely flat island. Bornholm also has four of the seven famous Danish round churches, which are among the most important landmarks on the island. Speaking of flat: Bornholm can be explored by bicycle on excellent cycle paths.
