The ruins of the medieval Hammershus castle are the hallmark of Bornholm and are one of the most visited and most popular monuments on the island. This stronghold was built in the mid-thirteenth century on the order of the then Archbishop of Lund (now Sweden) - Jakub Erlandsen. The fortress was located at the northern tip of the island on the steep slopes of the granite Hammeren massif. Hammershus was a very strong fortress, located in a difficult reach area. From its walls there was a perfect view of the surroundings, so no enemy ship could go unnoticed.
Of the four round churches on Bornholm, the most elegant is the Church of Sankt Ols in Olsker. Located slightly outside the city, the whitewashed rotunda was a defensive fortress for the rural population in the early Middle Ages. The 26-meter-high church is described as elegant because it has a very slender shape. The fact that it was built on top of a hill also contributes to its slender shape from the viewer's point of view. The purpose of this choice of location was not pure aesthetics, but only a good defensive position.
Just below Allinge Badehotel is Næs beach. The beach itself is one of the smaller ones, but definitely worth a visit. The sand at Næs is a bit coarser, and there are also more stones on the beach. Næs is less than 100 metres from Nordbornholms Røgeri. There is a large concrete bathing platform on the beach, right on top of the rocks with a ladder down to slightly deeper water. From the beach it is close to the town of Allinge, guesthouses, restaurants, and shops.
