A picturesque Danish island known for its fishing and arts and crafts industry, Bornholm is located in the Baltic Sea. It rests closer to the shores of Germany, Poland and Sweden than Denmark, which gives it a unique appeal. Bornholm makes for a marvelous escape from the bustle of the larger cities, and the southern beaches are particularly popular. Tourists come to Bornholm to explore the Almindingen, which is Denmark’s third largest forest. Another top attraction is the village of Svaneke with its beautifully preserved ancient buildings and abundant art galleries. Children go wild for the nearby amusement park called Joboland.
