BornholmRundt.dk – Walking around Bornholm

Project, idea, text and drawings by Frits Ahlefeldt

Hiking project about walking around Bornholm. Texted in Danish. Bornholm is a small ancient ( + one billion years old ) granite island out in the middle of the Baltic sea. Bornholm has a very unique mix of culture and nature and a very diverse approx. 120 long coastline, where hikers will meet at least four very different kind of landscapes from long white beaches in the South, to flat rocky coastal trails on the East, to steep exotic and dramatic riff cliffs on the North and finally a walk elevated more than 100 meters above the sea with amazing views on the West side of Bornholm

I have researched and walked this coastal trail more than 15 times over the last 20 years and it is one of my favorite Danish hiking trails because of the superb combination of small cozy fishing villages, historical castles, pubs, smoke-houses and inns between unique 120 ( 4-6 days of meandering, well-trotten coastal trails of a very high standard, most of the time far away from roads and cars

I have my Bornholm Coastal Trail hiking project planned to come in an English version – but for now the Danish version is up, with an option for Google Translate here:
