The Griffin Spa Hotel in Rønne - The Capital of Bornholm
The Griffen Spa Hotel is wonderfully situated by the sea, and close to the old part of Rønne. If you have chosen to stay in a room with sea view, you can watch the sailboats come in and out of Rønne marina, almost right in front of your window.
If you feel like going for a swim, the little, cosy, sandy beach, Nørrekås is only 300 meters away, along the beach promenade. By Nørrekås you will find a lovely little ice cream shop offering delicious homemade ice cream cones. It can easily become a habit, talking an evening walk along the sea, to the ice cream shop.
Sightseeing in Rønne
Ice cream cone in hand, you can take a walk along the little winding streets of Rønne's old town. Here you will find the most beautiful timber framed houses, bearing witness of a time, where Rønne was home to many wealthy ship owners. If you really want to turn back the clock, visit Erichsen's Gaard. Erichsen's Gaard is a living museum, where you can experience a “noble” home, as it appeared in the 1850s, when the house was often visited by Holger Drachmann, the poet and painter, and Kristian Zahrtmann, the painter.
Interesting shops and a wonderful atmosphere at the town square
Not far from Erichsen's Gaard, you will find Rønne's town square, with a wealth of interesting shops, cafes and a wonderful atmosphere. Take a seat in one of the cafes and enjoy the buzzing life - or keep exploring Rønne, the capital of Bornholm. In the old part of Rønne, you will also find Rønne Theatre, of which parts were built as early as 1789, making Rønne Theatre the oldest theatre house in Denmark. Rønne Theatre puts on many interesting performances during the year. If you are in the mood for a different kind of cultural experience, Rønne's "Musikhuzet" opens its doors to concerts and stand-up shows almost every weekend.
The second largest cruise ship port in Denmark
Back at the harbour there is a swarming life - especially the days when giant cruise ships berth, bringing visitors from all parts of the world to Bornholm. Rønne is the second largest cruise ship port in Denmark; the harbour is currently being expanded, so that even more cruise ships will be able to berth. By the harbour, you will also find the beautiful Saint Nicolas Church, which is definitely worth a visit, if you are interested in architecture.
From the harbour, you will turn back towards the Griffen Spa Hotel, and if you are not tempted to get more ice cream, you can skip the beach promenade, and walk back along the little winding lanes to the hotel.
