New Years Eve on Bornholm

New Years Eve on Bornholm

Are you looking to celebrate New Years Eve on Bornholm?

You really don’t need to do much more than step outside your own front door and look up at the sky.

Most Danes tend to watch the Queen’s New Year speech on television at 6pm and then it’s party time.

After watching the speech, people meet up with friends and family and then let off fireworks in the street.

Everywhere you go you will see fireworks from 6pm until well after midnight.
It’s one big party across the island.

Of course, some gluhwein and schnapps may be consumed, just to enhance the party mood.

Here’s wishing all of our reader a fantastic new year..

New Year’s Eve in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is buzzing on New Year’s Eve, with thousands of revellers out and about the town centre. Many Danes eat at home before going out later and big meals with family or friends are common. Copenhagen’s diverse restaurants are open on this night but busy, so it’s a good idea to book ahead if you want to eat out on New Year’s Eve.

Here’s wishing all of our reader a fantastic new year.

Where to stay in Bornholm – News – Free Fruit And Vegetables

Where to stay in Bornholm – News – Free Fruit And Vegetables

Free Seasonal Fruit And Veg For Our Guests

What’s growing in our garden in 2017?

For the last two years we have offered free home grown organic fruit and vegetables to our guests throughout the season.
This started in 2015 with a few small raised beds filled with some strawberry plants, a few sugar snap peas and some salads. Our guests loved that so last year we expanded with more raised beds and a 250 square metre fenced vegetable patch.
Once again the guests loved this and there was nothing better than watching couples and families heading out to the garden, basket in hand, to dig up some new potatoes, pick some runner beans or harvest a head of lettuce.
For many families this was the first time that the children had picked their own fruit and veg and we would often see parents taking photos of the kids digging up some carrots or eating strawberries straight off the plants.

This year we will again be offering free fruit and vegetables to all guests.

Everything is home grown, organically, from heirloom seeds and this year we will be trying a selection of beans, carrots, tomatoes, potatoes, beetroot, kale, peas, lettuce, radishes, pumpkins and squash.

We now have a greenhouse so the tomatoes should be ready to eat earlier and their season should be longer.

On the fruit front we have cherries, blackcurrants, red currants, gooseberries, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries and blackberries. We also have a few apple trees and a pear tree.

Guests can also use the BBQ patio and al fresco dining area.

Free Organic Home Grown Vegetables On Bornholm – Pick your own

Free Organic Home Grown Vegetables On Bornholm – Pick your own

Free Organic Home Grown Vegetables On Bornholm

Our guests get to pick their own fruit and veg straight from the field.

IMG_0239

Last year here at our farm, Vestervang (holidaysonbornholm.com), we grew our own organic fruit and vegetables and offered these to our guests in a “pick your own” way.

Some guests had breakfast under one of the cherry trees, picking fresh ripe cherries and adding them to some yogurt . How nice is that!
For many of the children that stayed with us it was the first time they had been in a vegetable garden and a few got addicted to our fresh peas (these were kids that didn’t like “normal” peas).

In the late afternoon there’s simply nothing better than cropping some fresh veg and eating it just minutes later. It just tastes so much better than shop bought produce.

Anyway, this “pick your own” went down a storm with our guests so this year we decided to expand the vegetable patch in order to grow more and to grow a wider variety of plants.

As you can see from the photo the new patch is well under way and things are sprouting up all over the place.

We are growing potatoes, onions, leeks, garlic, carrots (various varieties), beetroot, tomatoes (various varieties), beans, peas, squash, melons, salad leaves (assorted), rocket, sprouts and more.

There are many fresh herbs too and a few types of mint for tea making.

We also have 2 cherry trees, apple trees, a pear tree, black currents, red currents, gooseberries, and blue berries.

And to top it all off we have a ton of strawberry plants that are already on their way to producing a bumper crop.

So if you are thinking about visiting Bornholm, looking for somewhere to stay and like fresh healthy food bear us in mind.

What’s on in Bornholm – Exhibitions

What’s on in Bornholm – Exhibitions

Looking for something to do on Bornholm? Well a visit to the art gallery may well fit the bill.
The Bornholm Art Museum (Bornholms Kunstmuseum) is situated on the Danish island of Bornholm, above the Sanctuary Rocks (Helligdomsklipperne) about 6 kilometres north-west of Gudhjem. The building was constructed in 1993 and enlarged in 2003. The museum’s permanent collection consists principally of paintings by artists with connections to Bornholm from the early 19th century to the present day. Special attention is given to the Bornholm school of painters which emerged at the beginning of the last century when a number of modernists, attracted to picturesque Bornholm and the tiny island of Christiansø, painted landscapes and local nature.

The permanent exhibition includes works by Edvard Weie, Karl Isakson, Olaf Rude, Kræsten Iversen, Niels Lergaard and Oluf Høst.

In addition, numerous paintings and works of sculpture present a rich picture of artistic life on Bornholm.

Covering an area of some 4,000 square meters, the museum itself is an impressive architectural achievement. Designed by architects Johan Fogh and Per Følner, it is divided into three levels as the ground the slopes down towards the sea. The galleries are situated on either side of a kind of street where water trickles down from the age-old Helligdomskilde healing spring.
