Bornholm - a pearl in the middle of the Baltic Sea (part 1)

Hammershus - Northern Europe's largest medieval fortification, situated 74 meters above sea level on Hammeren, the northern tip of the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.

 Relaxed Danish lifestyle in the small town of Gudhjem at the northern coast of Bornholm.
Gudhjem is a popular venue for tourists who are attracted by its steep, picturesque streets, stunning views and a friendly atmosphere.

Cliff coast along the coastal footpath from Allinge via Bornholms art museum to Gudhjem.

Me and my sweatheart and my camera in a rocky bay - welcome to the sound of silence.
You just hear the sound of the wind, the waves and the seagulls.

  1. Looks like you could unwind and relax yourself at Bornholm. The coastal town houses are simply charming and the landscape is beautiful. The name and the sound of the Baltic Sea together with the sound of waves and seagulls arouses my longing for the land far away.


  2. Hi, Uwe,

    Oh, this is a hidden peal in the middle of the sea. The panoramic view of houses and the ocean is exquisite!! What I am amazed with here is the harmony of the houses. Almost all of them have red roofs and white walls. I feel as if I were looking at the different world. Enjoying these views, listening to the sound of silence and taking photos, it must be the happiest moment. How beautiful and pleasing to the eye your photos are!!
    Have a great weekend!

  3. Really nice pics! :-)

  4. Ååååååh so idyllic it looked :) Could hardly look like it was in a movie!
    Too bad you could not swim then ... Hope you had a wonderful holiday with relaxation and good food. We also have a great time in Mallorca.

    Have a nice summer and enjoy life :)
