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.

Collar is an alternative to the classic tubular wool scarf. Most people find it uncomfortable to pull a tubular scarf on and off, but the zipp solves the problem. The zip is a comforable and functionel feature that sets Collar apart from the normal tubular scarf.

A month of presents: Danish calendars

A month of presents: Danish calendars

Advent calendars are called Christmas calendars in Denmark. Unlike the chocolate calendars found in other countries, Danish Christmas calendars contain 24 small gifts for children, or grown-ups that like to treat each other! For a different kind of calendar, tune in to Danish TV in December. The main TV stations broadcast their own Christmas Calendars, with 24 short episodes. Danish children watch eagerly every day and the excitement builds for the big night itself; 24 December!

A little light each day: The calendar candle

A little light each day: The calendar candle

Another Danish tradition in the lead up to Christmas is the calendar candle. The candle is marked with 24 lines and decorated with fir tree motives and dancing, red-cheeked pixies! The daily lighting of the candle tends to be a special time shared by the family at the start of the day. It's the children's job to blow out the candle exactly at the line-mark, ready for the next day!
