Hasle - harbour life, art and beautiful nature
Hasle is on the the larger towns on Bornholm and is located just 11 kilometers north of Rønne. The town's center is the harbour, and here you can really sense the town's history with fishing as one of the former major industries. Today, Hasle is particularly known for Bornholms Center for Kunsthåndværk (Bornholm Arts & Crafts Center), Hasle smokehouse, Hasle Marina with a gorgeous harbour bath and not least the fantastic and varied nature that surrounds the town.
The nature around Hasle invites to a lot of unique experiences. In Lystskoven south of the town you will find four lakes with the beautiful names; Rubinsø, Safirsø, Pyritsø and Smaragdsø (Rubin Lake, Sapphire Lake, Pyrite Lake and Emerald Lake). The lakes is a result of coal and clay mining and are today beautiful oases where you can swim and relax. A little outside the town, you can explore the unique and moon-like landscape, Kultippen, which is also a product of coal mining on Bornholm.
