“Small, but not as crowded”
Review of Olsker Church

Olsker Church
Reviewed July 31, 2016 via mobile

Sct. Ols church is small, but without the crowds of Østerlars, so it's a more intense experience. And the climb though the narrow door to get upstairs is for sure an intense experience

The island is so small that one can see all four of the round churches for which Bornholm is famous. They are each unique and offer a different perspective of the island's history. Olsker Kirke has the tightest stairway to the fortress levels and offers terrific views of the sea. It is very much worth it if you are visiting or staying on the northern part of Bornholm.

The tallest of Bornholm's four round churches. We visited all of them, but never found one open to go inside unfortunately. So we cannot say if there is still a fee to see any of them. Perhaps they are open during the summer season. However, the outside and the manicured cemetery are beautiful, particularly in early morning or late afternoon light. Well worth a visit when exploring Bornholm.

This is one of the four round churches on Bornholm dating back to 1150. Although there is a modest entry fee don't be deterred as the church is a fascinating reminder of the need for physical as well as spiritual defence is those violent times. The church is beautifully maintained in a lovely setting.

This church is so fascinating as the rest of these special round churches in the island. The special atmosphere created by the circular architecture is worth experiencing.
