Bornholm is an excellent island for biking tourists!

Published on January 21, 2015 by alan egan


Bornholm has Europe´s best network of bicycle routes. In spite of its limited size - 587 km2 - a relative modest size - it is marvellous discovering Bornholm by bike. Bornholm has 44.000 inhabitants and a coastline of no less than 105 km. From north to south it is app. 40 km and from east by west app.30 km.
The southern part of Bornholm is flat and has the finest beaches in Northern Europe. On the northern part you will find rocks, granite, beaches and sand in a very hilly terrain. You will not find rocks and granite in other parts of Denmark.
Bornholm is the ideal place for biking, so even younger or untrained cyclists can feel perfectly safe on one of Europe´s best cycle networks. Most of the bicycle routes and paths are separated from other traffic.
Since 1981 up to the present, the County of Bornholm has established a network of bicycle routes that now extends to just over 250 kilometres. The bicycle route network enables cyclists to travel in safety around the island and experience the natural splendour of Bornholm at close hand. The network is composed of the former railway lines, paths, forest lanes, lightly trafficked municipal roads and paths or marked bicycle lanes along the highways.
Bornholm has 19 different museums, stretching from the history of civilization, Medieval Centre to the large and modern Art-Museum in Rø and the Experience centre Natur Bornholm in Aakirkeby.
Bornholm is famous for its many restaurants and café's where fish is often a speciality.
During the summer there are festivals in many of the towns and villages with music, dancing and entertainment.
On this wonderful island we have 4 round churches and the largest castle ruin in Northern Europe (name: Hammershus Slotsruin).
