A lovely holiday in Balka-Snogebæk
Ellehuset is located just 1,400 meters from Balka Beach, which is one of Bornholm's very best beaches. Look forward to a nice and very child-friendly beach with shallow water.
A good tip is also to take the short walk along the beach or the forest to the small fishing village of Snogebæk, which offers a wonderful harbor atmosphere with cafes, restaurants, a smokehouse and shops. Try to taste one of the famous pizzas at the cafe "Søren's", where there is plenty of fun and live music. The audience is a wonderful mix of children, young people and adults, so the family can enjoy themselves together. If you have children with you, they will be impressed that they can swing in an old lifeboat that hangs in the cafe's ceiling. After dinner, you can taste a delicious homemade ice cream at the cafe Nettis.
Experience Snogebæk Harbor
Take a walk along the harbor and have a chat with the local fishermen. Not all of their stories are equally truthful, but they are funny. If you have the fishing rods with you, it is possible to catch fish for dinner from the harbor pier - alternatively, you can also cheat a little and buy some delicious fish for the grill in the fish shop.
If you are in the mood for shopping, we recommend you to stop by Pernille Bülow's design store, where there are plenty of temptations in clothing and applied art. Also visit the large hawker market on Saturdays, where there are fun things and great opportunities for you to make a good deal.
Take a bike ride
Bornholm's extensive network of cycle paths starts almost right at Ellehuset - and you live just 1,200 meters from a bicycle rental, so rent a bicycle and experience the beautiful landscape. Try cycling to Dueodde, where from Dueodde Lighthouse you can see most of South Bornholm. Or drive the approximately 4 kilometers to Nexø along the pleasant cycle path, which has been built on the old railway. It is a wonderful walk through the forest and close to the sea.
Nexø offers a cozy harbor and city environment with plenty of shopping opportunities.
Get to the top of BornholmerTårnet
If you are interested in history, then you must visit BornholmerTårnet at Dueodde. The tower was formerly NATO's advanced radar and listening post towards the Eastern Bloc countries, but today the tower is a beautiful lookout tower and converted into a Cold War museum, where you can experience Bornholm's exciting role during the Cold War. For example, you can see one of the MIG fighters that were used in connection with the flight of Polish pilots to Denmark. At Dueodde there are also two large German bunkers from the Second World War.
A bit more peaceful is the Butterfly Park in Nexø, where you can experience a multitude of beautiful butterflies - and if you have children with you, they will love the large amusement park Brændesgårdshaven. Once admission is paid, all rides are free - including admission to the water park and the mini-zoo, which the kids will love too. If you have slightly older children with you, they might like to try speed and racing in Bornholm's Gocart Center, which is located approximately 5 kilometers from the holiday home
