NexoDenmark

Hop in the waves of the Baltic Sea waves from one of Denmark’s best beaches, relax in the cosy town centre overlooking the harbour and sea, or test your strength with Rokkestenen, the rocking stone.

Nexo is a quaint fishing and trading village on the eastern part of Bornholm. The village is located directly next to the island’s largest fishing port, which offers a pleasant seaside village experience year-round. Every summer in August, you can combine your holiday stay in Nexo with the Ostersojazz Baltic Jazz Music Festival, where loads of free jazz concerts are on offer at the port and the city.

Talk of a “city break” in Nexo is perhaps an exaggeration, but the cosy town square nevertheless offers a setting for a relaxed and varied shopping experience with a range of special boutiques, eateries and market days. There are also several interesting museums, including the house of author Martin Andersen Nexos, or you can explore the history of Nexo and Bornholm at the Nexo Museum.

Speaking of the island and its history, a trip to Nexo is an ideal opportunity to experience an exciting piece of world history up close. Nexo was bombed heavily during World War II, leaving its traces on the architecture of the village. The result is a charming mix of Swedish wooden houses, half-timbered houses and sandstone buildings.

If you’ll be bringing children on your holiday in Nexo, they will no doubt be delighted to visit the Bornholm Butterfly and Tropical Park. Step into the tropical heat and take in the fragrance of the many exotic trees and flowers that blend with the sound of tropical birdsong and the wing beats of more than 1,000 different free-flying butterflies. When you travel to Nexo, you can also look forward to some of the best beaches, Dueodde Strand and Balka Strand.

Gourmands can safely go on holiday or a weekend trip to Nexo. Nature enthusiasts can pack binoculars and watch the wading birds in the bird sanctuary on Nexo Sydstrand. The area around Nexo is ideal for cycling, just as Dueodde Golf Course is popular with the golfing community. Bornholm is just a stone’s throw away. From Copenhagen, you can take the train to Ystad in Sweden. From there, take the boat to Ronne Harbour (about 1.5 hours away). You can even take your car on the ferry.

Travel to Nexo if you’re dreaming of stunning natural beauty paired with a cosy harbour and village life with breathtaking surroundings.
