BIKE TRAILS OF NORTH BORNHOLM
One of the most popular ways of touring Bornholm is by bike. The island has 150 miles of bike trails. So let's get on our bikes and get going! Our guide will show us the highlights of this great cycling area. We will pick up our bikes in the village and follow our guide out of town through undulating countryside until we arrive at the Helligdomsklipper (Sacred Cliffs), not far from town. We will leave our bikes at the Bornholm Art Museum which has won several prizes for it's architecture and walk down to the rocky coastline. Steep slopes with cliffs rising abruptly from the sea to up to 150 feet tower above small half-hidden coves. Your guide will point out to you some of the special sites. Back on our bikes we head through the countryside to the very scenic lake of Graamyr, located in the forest above the village of Gudhjem. Continuing on we soon arrive at the Open Air Museum " Melsted farm. Here we see how people lived in the countryside more than 100 years ago, how their daily lives were and we hear about the local history. You will visit the residential part as well as the stables; see the horse carriages and old farm machinery. On leaving the Open Air Museum, we will ride along the rocky coastline into town, where we will pass the Church of Gudhjem and arrive at the Old Wind Mill " actually the largest of its kind in Denmark, which was built in 1893. It was used for grinding wheat to flour until 1965 " then it was "retired". In 2006 it reopened with a cafe and a shop which promotes locally made goods and agricultural products. During the visit we will be given a small sample of the local products such as jam, biscuits or honey. Leaving the Wind Mill we walk our bikes down a steep street through the center of the village past glass studios, handicrafts stores and cafes as we return to the harbor. After this energetic tour is over you might want to treat yourself to a couple of locally-brewed beers at a harborside pub! (cost not included)
