The beach in front of Hotel GSH in Rønne

Green Solution House, Hotel GSH, in Rønne - The Capital of Bornholm

Just in front of Hotel GSH is a small wooded area, which will take you down to the hotel’s “secret” beach. The beach is almost exclusively known to the local islanders. The water is clean and pleasant, and the sand is warm. Lay back on one of the large blocks of granite on a summer’s day, and feel the heat massage your back. After a swim you might walk along the wooded path, taking you towards the centre of Rønne, the capital of Bornholm.

Stories of war
At the end of the woods, you will find Kastellet, a building, which, during the 17th century, formed part of the defence of Rønne. Today, Kastellet is part of the very interesting Defence Museum, where, among other things, you can experience what happened on Bornholm during the Second World War. While the rest of Denmark was celebrating the Liberation in May 1945, the German Commander on Bornholm refused to surrender the island to the Russians, making the statement that he had been ordered only to surrender to the English forces. This resulted in a massive bombing of Rønne (and Nexø) by the Russians. Immediately after, Bornholm was occupied by the Russian troops, which remained until April 1946. The Defence Museum also tells about the important role that Bornholm played during the following Cold War. Exciting tales of spies and defections await you!

Church, Theatre and the “hygge” of Town Life 
Following the dramatic, but exciting experiences at the Defence Museum, you might continue to Rønne Harbour. During the summer, you will find a swarming life – especially the days when giant cruise ships berth. From the harbour you turn right, heading towards the centre of Rønne. Soon, the Saint Nicolas Church will rise in front of you. A little further on, you will pass Rønne Theatre, which is the oldest theatre in Denmark still in use. Might a play at the theatre tempt you tonight? Or will you want to continue to the Market at the town square and enjoy a cup of coffee and the “hygge” that accompanies the buzz of the town square.

The Old Rønne 
Close by the market at the town square, and the town centre, you will find the old part of the town with its crooked lanes and charming small timber framed houses. Here, you will find beautiful old merchants’ houses from the 19th century, reminding us of a time, when Rønne was home for many wealthy ship owners. Enjoy the beautiful houses in a relaxing walk through the idyllic lanes. 

Visit Bornholm’s Museum 
In Rønne, here are plenty of museums to visit. In Bornholm’s Museum, you can experience the history of Bornholm through 10.000 years. Because of the location far from the rest of Denmark, Bornholm has had its own independent development. Bornholm had a convenient position for the sea routes in the Baltic Sea, and consequently developed as an important centre for trade, back in the day. The trade resulted in a bustling life and considerable riches on Bornholm, but the riches also attracted less desirable visitors – pirates.

Another exciting museum is Erichsen’s Gaard, an old merchant’s house, where the clock was stopped back in the 1850’s. Here you can experience a “noble” home, as it appeared at that time. You can also pay a visit to Hjorth’s Factory, a working museum, where you will experience the proud ceramic tradition of Bornholm.

Hotel in Rønne with the perfect location 
Hotel GSH has the perfect location in Rønne. You are close to the woodlands, to the beach, and then again, close to the centre of Rønne. If you do not want to walk along the pathways to Rønne, you can hire a bicycle at the reception, or take the city bus to the market at the town square. The bus stop is right outside the hotel, and affords you easy access to the far-reaching web of bus routes on the island. If you are travelling without a car, Hotel GSH is the perfect place to spend your holiday.
