Bornholm Bicycle route – Rønne-Rø-Helligdommen

Bornholm Bicycle route – Rønne-Rø-Helligdommen

Enjoy a beautiful bicycle ride on the former line of the Bornholm Railway Company.
A beautiful cycle track along the former railway line
Starting in the early 1900s, there were train services from Rønne to the villages of Sandvig, Gudhjem and Nexø. The trains drove on Bornholm until 1968 and it's on these railway sections that you are going to enjoy Bornholm. The cycle route from Rønne to Nyker follows this former line of the Bornholm Railway Company.

Experience the most beautiful rocks of Bornholm
After Klemensker you are back the old railway line, passing through the spectacular Kleven, where the path leads between steep rock walls to the lush Spellinge Bog. From the village of Rø, which used to have a station, the route runs downhill to the Bornholm Art Museum and Helligdomsklipperne (Sanctuary Rocks), some of the most beautiful rock formations on the island.

We can provide you with a lovely 3 bedroom apartment almost in the middle of the Island. See more here: www.holidaysonbornholm.com

By Christine Engel Espersen

Explore the Bornholm larder
The small size of Bornholm makes it easy to explore the delicious Bornholm larder. Explore the 235 km of varied routes and visit the many food producers, who all make delicacies of high quality. A suggestion for an exciting ride on Bornholm could be our gourmet route between Gudhjem-Østermarie-Svaneke.

The Bornholm Gourmet Route is about 23,5 km
If you choose to visit all the producers of the Bornholm Gourmet Route the cycle track is around 23,5 km in total, but of course you can choose only to visit a few of them – you and your stomach decide! You will also find distances between each producer and not uninteresting – even the number of consumed calories. There is something for both your sense of taste and sight, and even your fitness.

Bon appétit and have a good trip!

NB! Be aware that the street Brøddegade in Gudhjem is very steep towards the harbor, and therefore it is forbidden to ride a bike – down. But just try upwards!
