Bornholm: The sunny island of Bornholm is captivating with its diverse landscapes, small fishing villages, castle ruins, and rugged cliffs. The island is best known for its outdoor activities such as rock climbing, kayaking, hiking, but it is also a wonderful destination to stroll through seaside towns.

Best Time to Visit Denmark

The optimal time to visit Denmark is from May to September when the temperatures are warm, the skies are clear, and the days are long. However, be aware that summer is peak season, leading to higher travel costs and increased crowds. The winter months are cold and dark but offer a quieter experience. Spring and fall are excellent alternatives, providing pleasant weather with fewer tourists.
