One of the must visits when on Bornholm, it's the largest of the ones on the island - entry is 10DKK - and I highly recommend making the climb up to the round roof. The stairs are uneven and a bit steep but if I...More

This is a very unusual and interesting piece of church architecture. It is great to explore the insides by climbing up narrow stone stairs inside the thick walls all the way up to the attic. The wodden spines supporting the roof and the exterior stone...More

Why did they build these churches almost 900 years ago? Fortification, observation, religion? Were the knigth templars involved? Kids love to climp the upper floors, and there's great info boards up there as well.

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. Østelars Rundkirke has a fantastic organ and is quite large. It is...More
