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 in 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, which is located right next to your holiday apartment in Nexø Havnefront.
Market days and cozy market atmosphere
In front of your holiday apartment in Nexø Havnefront 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 day, you can continue to Bornholm's Butterfly Park, where you will experience the most beautiful butterflies in a tropical climate.
You live close to Balka Beach
At the railway museum you will experiencee that in the old days there was a railway from Nexø to Balka Beach. Although it is only about three kilometers to Balka Beach, the better citizens preferred to ride in trains when going to the beach. Today, the railway tracks have been converted into a cycle path. Rent a bike and ride the beautiful route that takes you to one of Bornholm's most beautiful beaches. The soft white sand together with a shallow water depth make Balka Beach very friendly for children. At Balka Beach you can be taught both wind- and kite surfing and paddleboarding.
Balka Beach is located by the small fishing village Snogebæk, where there is also a wonderful harbour atmosphere.

Paradisbakkerne – The Hills of Paradise
In the novel “Pelle the Conqueror”, Pelle was a cowherd in the Hills of Paradise. At the time, Pelle probably did not have time to enjoy the beautiful area - but we hope you do. 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 rocking stones. Try to see if you can make it rock.
