Scenic Bornholm Countryside

Explore the picturesque farmlands and coastal beauty of Bornholm. Visit the historic Hammershus fortress, the interactive Melstedgaard Agricultural Museum, and the unique Oesterlars Roundchurch.

Bornholm is a picturesque Tiny Baltic Island belonging to Denmark and on this scenic tour through the picturesque farmlands will showcase the highlights. Travelling by coach you will enjoy the scenery of the coastline enroute to Hammerhus, a historic fortress on the northern tip of Bornholm. It is the largest castle ruins in Northern Europe.

The oldest part was built in the early 12th century to consolidate the power over the island held by the Archbishop of Lund obtained through an agreement with the Danish King, Svend Grathe. For the next 500 years Hammershus was the castle for the various rulers of the island. Hammershus was rebuilt and expanded on several occasions. In 1743 Hammershus was finally abandoned as a stronghold. Visit the new visitors center as well as the ruins and be prepared for a surprise along the way.

The next stop is at Melstedgaard Agricultural Museum. The museum used to be a farm and has been there since the 17th century and now replicates old-fashioned farming and food culture from Bornholm. In 2015 the museum opened a new attraction; “Gaarden – Food culture”, which is an interactive attraction where you can meet the farm animals and experience historic activities. Here you will learn about Bornholm as a culinary island and Melstedgaard as a self-sufficient farm.

Enjoy a refreshment and a look through “Skafferiet”, one of the shops on Bornholm that distributes the goods from the Bornholm food producers along with other delights. After this visit continue across the island through Almindingen – one of the largest forest areas in Denmark for the goal – Oesterlars Roundchurch– one of the four round churches to be found on Bornholm (where you will find half the total number of round churches in Denmark).
