An interesting place to visit and you can go up inside the church with difficulty via a steep staircase. This is a bit awkward when you are part of a tour group but worth it. A very peaceful place.

This is a pretty whitewashed church sitting in the Bornholm countryside. They charged us an admission to get in but I am unsure if that was the fee to enter the church or go to the lookout. We didn't go up to the lookout as the steps are old and the space in the lookout is small. The inside of... More

This 12th Century church was an easy bus ride from Svaneke. There was then a 1-2 km walk to the church itself. It is a fairly simple round church with some of the original murals reconstructed/restored on the interior walls. It was different in that the pews went all around the the outer walls. The pulpit was also on an... More

It's definitely worth seeing. Also, it's located on a very pleasant bike path (25) that winds through hills and forests. The church is near... More

The biggest of the 4 typical Round Churches of Bornholm, this one is very unique because of it's paintings in the walls, and of course it's special architecture. Stories say that this round churches are linked to the Templar Knight, what makes them even more special.

Bornholm is a unique part of Denmark in a number of ways. One of them is the 4 round churches (rundkirker) build from 1150 to 1250 (at the same time as Hammershus was build). They served mainly two purposes; church and protection against "unfriendly" foreigners. Østerlars Rundkirke is Denmark's biggest round church; we visited it on a beautiful August summer... More
