How to get to Bornholm

It's easy to get to Bornholm, and you can get here in several different ways.

The most popular way of travel to Bornholm, and the one we recommend - is with Bornholmslinjen, a ferry that goes between Ystad and Rønne multiple times every day. The ferry is also known as "Bornholmerfærgen", like it used to be called. These days the trip has become really fast and only takes about 80 minutes.

You can easily get to Ystad via car, train, or bus. Bornholmerbussen has departures from Copenhagen that are scheduled to be right on time, for most departures.
