The climate of Bornholm (Denmark)
Bornholm is a Danish island located in the Baltic Sea and is part of
the Hovedstaden region. The largest city on the island is the
capital Rønne. This is also the most important port in the country.
From this port several ferries sail to other islands in Denmark,
Germany, Poland and Sweden. The main sources of income are
agriculture and tourism. The name Bornholm can be translated to:
‘The island of the Burgundians’. The cities of Allinge and Sandvig
have merged and are a popular tourist attraction because of their
medieval harbor and churches. The famous round churches, locally
known as Rundkirkerne are 800 years old and are unique to the
island. Bornholm is also very popular among divers. Bornholm has a
moderate maritime climate slightly different from the rest of
Denmark. This is mainly caused by the influence of the Baltic Sea.
In general, the climate here is milder than in the rest of Denmark.
Bornholm gets the highest amount of hours of annual sunshine in
Denmark. However, during the winter longer periods with subzero
temperatures (during the night) are not uncommon. During some
winters the Baltic Sea may freeze over. When this occurs the warming
effect of the sea disappears and temperatures drop.

Climate figures are very useful but don’t present a general impression
of the climate and the eventual weather circumstances within a certain
period. The figures don’t always reflect the chance of wintry weather,
extreme heat or hurricanes. That is why we offer useful extra climate
