A lot of Danes visit Bornholm during their time in school, because the trip is mandatory in the curriculum. Some return later in life, spending their holiday on the island.
But you do not necessarily have to spend an entire week to explore the island. Bornholm is also excellent for weekend trips. So, then, what are you to do in these 48 hours? Good question.
What can you do on Bornholm?
We went on a weekend trip to Bornholm to be able to give you our tips on where you can stay and eat, but also what you can do and experience from Friday to Sunday on Bornholm.
You can follow our plan to the letter or merely let yourself be inspired for your next weekend on Bornholm. Should a weekend trip prove too short, coming back at later time for a longer stay is always possible!
Day 1: Crossing, The Falcon Hotel, and dinner at Nordlandet
We drive from Copenhagen around 3 PM to catch the ferry from Ystad to Rønne at 4:30 PM.
The crossing takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes; adding the 30 minutes it takes us to drive from Rønne to our first night's stay in Sandvig, the trip has taken us 3 and a half hours door to door.
Overnight stay at the Falcon Hotel in Sandvig
We spend the weekend's first night at The Falcon Hotel in Sandvig in northern Bornholm. The Falcon Hotel is a relatively new boutique hotel that exudes personality and adventure throughout its interior and atmosphere. If you've ever asked yourself, "wonder what it would look like if Karen Blixen and Indiana Jones lived together?" You can bet that The Falcon Hotel will give you a great example.
