Hammershus pops up as soon as you start looking up what to do on Bornholm, while preparing your trip. You might think you've seen it before you even get there. That impression is wrong and there's a lot more to it that just the ruin,...More

Great views of the sea and forests from the top of the ruins. Amazing old structures. Has a Parking lot nearby but you’ll need to pay for parking. Also has a fine visiting center where you can buy ice cream food and other refreshments.

Fabulous view, great place to be and stay. Why not bring your own picnic- and take the opportunity to walk down to the beach after having visited Hammershus.

Hadn't been here in about 15years. I'm glad we came back! Hammershus is sort of the icing on the cake if you want to mix Bornholm with history and the Ruins are some of the most authentic and we'll preserved you'll see. Even better is...More
