This s a must stop for me to visit Karamelleriet and buy Rokkesten, to visit Pernille Bulow glass design, and to buy Johan Bulow liquorice. And then Svaneke bryghus for lunch or dinner. Charming places !

Svaneke has quite a lot going for it. The harbour is pretty and there are some interesting shops including a glass manufacturer with glass bowls vases etc. We visited in summer and there were hollyhocks everywhere amongst attractive cottages. On the harbour there was a...More

It's a lovely harbour with lots of boats to admire both tall ships, yachts, and fishing boats. They also have a variety of shops from toffee makers to transportable coffee shops all making up a nice atmosphere and location. It's well worth a visit.

I love seeing something that is actually used for what it was intended. Fishing boats and other commerce goes on here. That is unbeatable by any tourist facility one could put up. Svaneke is therefore my favourite on Bornholm, and there are nice cafes around...More

Very nice little harbor, although local fishing is actually suffering from fishing quotas etc. There is at least one fishing boat regularly selling fish right off the deck (www.havfriskfisk.dk), the homepage is updated with the landing times/harbors and the types that will be for sale....More
