The island of Bornholm was formed through volcanic activity millions of years ago and settled over 3000 years before Christ. Today, it's an outpost of tremendous natural beauty with sandy beaches, rocky cliffs and scenic villas.
Visitors to the island find a never-ending fishing season that leaves every traveler with a 'fish tale' to take home. If hiking is more your speed, walk amongst the gentle grades and thick woods of the area. The island is known for its trails, and many organized routes are available to take you to the various points of interest, whether on foot or cycle. There's also mystery: numerous dolmens and mounds from peoples long lost to history still dot the countryside, many with unidentifiable carvings, shapes and symbols, with some in the likeness of ships.
The medieval round churches, which seem to have a Templar influence, are an icon of the island. Historians and architects still debate the purpose of the distinctive shape, though defensive purposes may have been a factor. Another distinction of the island is the "rocking stone" in the forest of Almindingen; a boulder was left during a previous glacial age in such a position that it rocks back and forth.
The Danish cottages are the perfect place to relax and complete a wondrous day on the island.
