Historically very fascinating

I like Hammershus. It's a nice place to take the family and learn more about Danish history. The scenic views are amazing and you can bring your dogs as well.

Hammershus Castle is a wonderful place to spend some hours running around with the family, your camera or just yourself! You can either drive up to the ruins or hike from various starting points, traversing the lovely nature surrounding the area.

I hiked here along the coast from Hasle, which allowed for free access to the ruins (if you don't mind hiking among free-range cows, bulls and billy goats). I found the ruins to be very interesting, and I think it's awesome that the public bus stops here regularly, too. This is a must-see if you're on Bornholm,and it's easy to... More

Very nice place to spend an afternoon as a family. We were on the treasure hunt and had great fun exploring this fantastic situated old ruined castle. Very educational for our 10 year old boy as well.

Nice place to visit. Great ruin and magnificent view over the sea. If it’s a cold day, bring some warm cloth. Its extra windy at the top.

Mixture of modern and ancient history with the remains of an old fortress overlooking the peninsula on the northern tip of Bornholm. Typically Danish in the sense that perhaps your expected to do your on research on the place rather than have it spoon-fed via some magnificent display or headphone system. On a sunny or bleak day it's worth a... More

Standing on the top of the castle with Sweden in the background you begin to appreciate the strategic importance of Denmark to the access to the Baltic stretching back to 13th century. There is a fair walk from the car park but the signing is good and there are helpful brochures in the kiosk. Walk or drive to Hammerhavn and... More

In May, when I visited Hammershus, the ruins were surrounded by beautiful carpets of white blooming flowers. It was towards the evening, the sun was about to sink in the waters of the Baltic Sea. The fishermen boats could still be seen down, below the ruins. Watching the sunset, admiring views, chilling out...

Nature is very beautiful and different at and around Hammershus Ruins. Before entering the site there is a stone monument on a small hill. To the left of it you will see signs for a path. It will take you down to the sea where the view is stunning. Follow the sign from there to Løvehovederne (Lion's heads) and you... More

Stopped there while biking around Bornholm. Great view, interesting history with plaques all over the place and good facilities for visitors. And free.
