Beautiful nature and exciting History
Just in front of Roseløkken is a small forest, which leads you down to the beach. Although the beach is beautiful, you should try to walk along the forest paths towards the center of Rønne, which is the capital of Bornholm. When the forest path stops, you will be greeted by Kastellet, which was part of the defense of Rønne in the 17th century. At Kastellet you will find the exciting defense museum, where you might experience Bornholm during World War II. The Defense Museum also talks about Bornholm's important role during the Cold War. Exciting spy- and defamation stories await you.
Church, theater, and cozy town square
After the exciting stories at the Defense Museum, continue down towards Rønne Harbour. Rønne is the center for the establishment of offshore wind farms in the Baltic Sea - and it is an impressive sight when more than 200-meter-long turbine wings are loaded on the ships. From the port you turn up towards the center. Soon, Sct. Nicolai Church throne up in front of you. If you continue a little further along the crooked streets, you pass Rønne Teater, which is Denmark's oldest theater. Can a theatrical performance tempt you tonight? If you are more into shopping and a good cup of coffee, then you can continue towards Store Torv, which is the center of Rønne, where there are good shops and cozy cafes.
The old part of town
Very near Store Torv is the old town with its crooked streets and charming small houses. Here you will find large merchant farms from the 19th century, which testify to a time when Rønne was home to many wealthy shipowners. Some of the houses still have towers that shipowners used when scouting for their ships to return home with their valuables. Enjoy the beautiful houses on a relaxing walk along the cozy streets. If you feel like pampering, peek inside the Griffen Spahotel, where you might enjoy wonderful spa and wellness experiences.
Visit Bornholms Museum
In Rønne you will find several museums. At Bornholms Museum you can experience Bornholm's history through 10,000 years. Due to its location far from the rest of Denmark, Bornholm has had its very own development. Bornholm is centrally located on the sea routes to the Baltic countries, and thus Bornholm was an important trading center in the "old days". The trade created life and great riches on Bornholm, but the riches also attracted less wanted guests in the form of pirates who plagued Bornholm for many years. This meant that the people of Bornholm at that time dug their valuables into the ground, and over time the treasures were forgotten. Therefore, Bornholm is the part of Denmark where there are most treasures with gold and silver jewelry. At Bornholm’s Museum you can, among other things, see some of the thousands of gold nuggets - small figures of gold - that have been found in the fields on Bornholm. Another exciting museum is Erichsens Gaard, where time is traced back to the 1850s. Here you must experience a "fine" civic home, as it was back then, when the painter Kristian Zahrtmann had his daily walk on Erichsens Gaard. In the beautiful garden, the old flower species from the 19th century are still in bloom. You may also pay a visit to Hjorths Fabrik, which is a living museum where you can experience Bornholm's proud ceramic tradition.
