Hammershus castle ruin is located on the top of a hill with a nice view of the sea. The former castle surrounded by once powerful walls and steep hills is a most impressive site. Walking around at the site you feel the history coming to you,
Hammershus is an old piece of history, as the castle ruins are from early year 1200. Located at the north tip of Bornholm, raised high above the sea, which you get to enjoy on a clear day. I was not this lucky, but even in foggy weather, ruin sightseeing is great!
Hammershus is Scandanavia's largest medieval fortification. Erected in the early 13th century, it served as a royal residence for Valdemar ll and as a base for the Danish Crusades.

The Nibelungen saga is know to many people. But this is the location where the Burgunders originate from. The views are spectacular as well so don't hesitate to go..
This old, historic fort from the 13th century on the island of Bornholm is very interesting and I could not help but thing I was going to see the ghost of Hamlet.

This is a must when going to Bornholm. This is one of the main attractions which is handled quite well by the organisers.

There are sheep walking around and it... 更多
If the weather behaves, this is a great sight. Plenty of info boards. Don't miss the "camel heads" on the walk below the castle. There's a nice short-cut from the overflow parking. Sandwiches, beers and ice are better at the harbour "Hammerhavnen" just north of Hammershus
This is a historical important castle and it's easy to see why they built it just there. They are currently building a visitor centre, and there is some work going on there. But it didn't ruin the beautiful view. A must see when on Bornholm.
