Town and Harbour
From your holiday apartment or summerhouse in Svaneke, you can enjoy sea view and short walking distance to the sea. Just a few hundred meters from your holiday home, you will find Svaneke Harbour. On the harbour, there are many charming cafes and shops. Enjoy the beautiful old harbour, which has been preserved to such an extent that it was used as backdrop for the Oscar-winning movie ”Pelle the Conqueror”, in the scenes where Pelle arrives to Bornholm with his father in 1877. From the harbour, you can walk up the charming narrow streets to the town square, where the atmosphere is always great – especially on market days, where you might get a good deal from one of the locals. Visit the old grocery store, ”Svaneke Købmandshandel”, which is a grocery store kept in the exact style of the 1950s. By the town square, you can take part in Svaneke’s version of the lottery: ”Chicken-bingo”. The game is really quite simple, 3 chickens are let out onto a bingo square, and it is up to you to predict, which of the 100 fields receive the first ”greeting” from one of the chickens.
