A rental car in Denmark is the best way to explore the Baltic island of Bornholm. A popular destination for tourists, Gudhjem offers steep, picturesque streets, friendly locals and stunning views. A fishing port on the northern coast of Bornholm, Gudhjem traces its roots back to the late 1200s. Seafood lovers will recognize Gudhjem as the first locale to prepare smoked herring - a process the village is still famous for, sending daily shipments to Copenhagen since the 1840s. With steep coastal cliffs and pristine streets, Gudhjem and the rest of this Baltic island rewards those who make the trip with once-in-a-lifetime views. Denmark is famous for its windmills and the nation's largest windmill stands atop the hill in the center of town. Gudhjem Molle, taken out of service in 1962, is now home to a popular shop and cafe.
Old Norse for "the island of the Burgundians," the Danish island of Bornholm lies to the east of most of Denmark in the Baltic Sea. The primary industries in Bornholm are fishing, glass making and pottery which features the use of locally worked clay. Dairy farms dot the interior of the island and during the summer months tourists flock to this beautiful location.
There's much to do on Bornholm and exploring the coast and interior of this gorgeous island could take days. A rental car in Gudhjem, a small fishing town on the northern coast of Bornholm, is the ideal way to start your Danish adventure. Dramatic rock formations in and around Gudhjem slope downward, transitioning into rich deciduous forests, farmland and eventually turning into soft sandy beaches in southern Bornholm. With something for everyone, exploring this unspoiled island in a rental car affords travelers autonomy and leaves room for pleasant detours and spur-of-the-moment excursions.
