With its lively harbor and airport, Rønne is Bornholm's centre of trade and culture. The harbor called Sdr. Bådehavn is the largest one of Bornholm and frequented by ferries, fishing boats and cargo vessels. The town is also the seat of the island's administration and around one-third of the island's population lives here. Rønne has a fascinating history coming under German and Swedish influence during its expansion as a herring fishing port and today with its cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and exciting museums it draws visitors mostly from Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Poland. Indeed, the town is known for its quaint cobbled streets and low-timbered houses so a visit to the streets called Laksegade and Storegade is a must. Stroll around here and explore the many historic houses which were once the homes and trade buildings of merchants and noblemen. In addition, the town also attracts visitors with its whitewashed St. Nicolas Church which stands proudly on the harbour and the graceful 19th-century lighthouse provides plenty of beautiful photo opportunities. This lovely town also called as “garden town” is a great mix of the sea and land and for sure deserves a visit.
