A lovely holiday in Nexø
Feddet Holiday Home is located by the small fishing village Balka, which is located between Snogebæk and Nexø, which is Bornholm's second largest city - and when you live on Feddet, you must of course also experience Nexø:
Restaurants and cafes close to you
Nexø offers several good cafes and restaurants. Relax with a good cup of coffee at Cafe Guldbønnen, or have lunch at the cozy H8 restaurant, which is decorated in the premises that in the old days were used as a harbor weight at Nexø harbor. At H8 you will be pampered with wonderful tapas dishes and good sandwiches. Right by restaurant H8 is an exhibition that welcomes you inside with beautiful glass art and ceramics.
Exciting experiences at Nexø Museum
At Nexø Museum you get exciting experiences about Nexø's history with a special focus on fishing and not least World War II, where Nexø became a piece in the big political game. While the rest of Denmark celebrated the liberation in May 1945, Nexø was carpet bombed by Russian bombers. The German commander on Bornholm refused to surrender to the Russians, as he only wanted to surrender to the English - but the English, who were already in Denmark, did not dare come to Bornholm for fear of provoking the Russians. The result was that the Russians bombed and later invaded Nexø. The Russian occupation continued until 1946. Come and experience the violent history at Nexø Museum.
Market days and cozy market atmosphere
By the harbor is Skippertorvet, where there is a flea market during the summer. It is a popular event for both locals and tourists. Visit the cozy stalls, where you will be tempted by good offers while listening to cozy live accordion music.
The Bornholm Railways and Butterflies
Today, cars, buses and bicycles bring the people of Bornholm and tourists around the island, but until the 1960s, railways were a large part of Bornholm's transport routes. At the railway museum in Nexø you can explore the history of Bornholm's railway. Back to the present, you can continue to Bornholm's Butterfly Park, where you will experience the most beautiful butterflies in a tropical climate.
Martin Andersen Nexø
Martin Andersen Nexø was a well-known Danish author who grew up in Nexø. His work included among other things the novel “Pelle the Conqueror”. Today, his birthplace has been transformed into a museum, which offers exciting photographs, paintings and stories about the author's life and works. Take a walk in the author's footsteps on the 6.6-kilometer-long poet route, which starts and ends at the Martin Andersen Nexø Museum. The Poetry Route takes you past 8 stops, each of which offers live audio stories about the author's life and literature. After lots of experiences, maybe you need a little lunch? There are many good cafes and restaurants in Nexø ... but a good tip is Nexø Smokehouse, which offers a wide selection of smoked products (also other than fish). At Nexø Smokehouse you get high-level delicacies at reasonable prices.
The hills of paradise - Paradisbakkerne
In the novel “Pelle the Conqueror”, Pelle guards’ cows in the Hills of Paradise. At the time, Pelle probably did not have time to enjoy the beautiful area - but we hope you have time for that. the Hills of Paradise offers an adventurous nature with rocky landscapes, small fissure valleys and hiking blocks from the ice age. Make sure to tie the laces well before you leave home, sheep as the name suggests, the Hills of Paradise is a very hilly area. In the Hills of Paradise you can see one of Bornholm's seven castles, Gammelborg, and one of Bornholm's largest rock stones. Try to see if you can make it shake with just a light gesture.
If you have children on holiday, they will love to experience Bornholm's great amusement park "Brændesgårdshaven". Once the entrance fee is paid, all rides are free - and you can look forward to slides, mini-zoo, mini golf, climbing countries, carousels and much-much more.
