Gudhjem - winding streets, cliffs and old charm
Gudhjem is beautifully located on a mountainside on the eastern part of Bornholm and is an incredibly charming harbour town with winding streets, small shops, cosy eateries and a buzzing harbour.
The process of smoking fish on Bornholm all started in Gudhjem back in the 1860s, as evidenced by the town's many characteristic chimneys that still remain today. The craft spread from Gudhjem to the rest of the island, and today especially smoked herring and the dish Sol over Gudhjem has become a characteristic of Bornholm.
With its many exciting experiences and activities in and around it, Gudhjem is today one of the most popular towns on all of Bornholm. You can e.g. visit The Medieval Centre of Bornholm, take the ferry to Christiansø and explore the beautiful nature by Røverborgen and Helligdomsklipperne.
