Svaneke. The easternmost town on Bornholm. Charm and atmosphere
Svaneke is one of the few towns in Europe, which has been awarded the European Council’s gold medal for ”Excellent Preservation Work”. Take a ride on the local horse drawn carriage, where you can lean back and enjoy the beautiful old timber framed houses.
On the harbour, you will soon experience the holiday vibes, and perhaps be tempted with a cup of coffee, in one of the charming cafes. From the harbour, you can walk along the narrow streets to the square, where there is always a great atmosphere – especially on market days, where you might be able to get a good deal from one of the locals. We recommend that you visit ”Svaneke Købmandshandel”, which is a charming traditional grocery store, where time was stopped in the 1950s.
The creative hub of Bornholm
Svaneke is not just charming. Svaneke is the creative hub of Bornholm. Here, you will be able to find anything your eyes, or belly, may desire. Glass art. Paintings. Designer clothes. Handmade liquorish, chocolate, ice cream, and hard candy. Do visit the local smokehouse, with its fish delicacies, or Svaneke Bryghus with its critically acclaimed beer. Of course you need to take part in the local version of the lottery: ”Chicken Bingo”. The game is very simple, 3 chickens are let out onto a large bingo field, and it is your job to guess which of the numbers receive the first ”greeting” from one of the chickens. Chicken-Bingo in Svaneke has been voted by Berlingske Tidende as Denmark's third best holiday experience.
Warning – Svaneke is highly addictive
It is not just the tourists that love Svaneke. Svaneke is the town with some of the highest real estate prices on Bornholm. Not just the local islanders move to Svaneke, many tourists forget all about their return ticket to ”Denmark”, when they have visited Svaneke. As such, we must warn you that visiting Svaneke can be highly addictive…
