Its picture-postcard shoreline is a striking contrast to much of the rest of the low-lying country.Along the south-west coast there are particularly dramatic cliffs and promontories, which a British visitor might associate with Dorset or Devon, climaxing in the oak glades and atmospheric ruins of Northern Europe's largest castle, Hammerhus.The oversized glass tubes of the algae system vie with an impressive green wall, and when I first arrived, late in the evening, the unlit space glowed eerily like a futuristic film set.
There's a well-developed cycle network encircling and criss-crossing the island, and a Food Culture House also just opened, fusing international, slow organic food movement thinking with traditional island fare.Despite the island's declining population, there has been a small counter-migration of sorts, a wave of thirty-somethings moving here for the quality and pace of life – and the creative spirit.Apart from liner connections we also organise conferences, receptions, banquets and attending to trainings connected with sea cruises al well as attractive programme of sightseeing on Bornholm.The vessel can also be chartered for any voyage in the Baltic. km, 150 km of coastal line and 40 km distance between furthest capes.

Bornholm is a place where nature and culture join in harmony. The most precious are white, Roman, rotunda-shaped churches dating back to the 12th century, the only ones in Scandinavia, and the biggest stronghold in Northern Europe, the ruins of the Hammershus Castle and a maritime fortress on the stony island of Christianso located about 18 km off the coast of Bornholm.
The inhabitants of the island bid warm welcome tourists.
During the 18th century, the clays found here led to the creation of several ceramics factories which provided Denmark with the great majority of its china and porcelain.
Those factories are all but gone now, but a new generation of craftspeople is setting up shop and settling down to make the island their home.
The cliff-hewn western coastline, with its stretches of lovely sandy beach, is dotted with hotels, campsites and other holiday accommodation, as well as the kind of small, photogenic, one-time fishing villages that make for alpha-level tourist honeypots.
