Anecdotes and Stories from the Island of Bornholm
Hike over the hill Bokul and then along a coastal path to Hestestenene. There's an amazing view over Bornholm's sea and cliffs the entire way. Maybe we'll meet underground dwarves or hear the echo of wild horses … Without a doubt the sun has always risen in the east, and still does over Bornholm.
We'll have ample opportunities to sit down along the road while I tell you stories about Bornholm's history. This nature walk will end at Nørresand, the town of Gudhjem's ''secret'' harbour.
This tour is for anyone from 5 years and over, since being able to walk on own strength will be required as we walk on cliffs and hills. We'll start on the parking lot at the gas station on Helligdomsvej 1 in Gudhjem.

Myths about Bornholm
There are numerous myths about Bornholm. The Knights Templar were supposed to have hidden a treasure on Bornholm. That is if you believe the film "Treasure of the Knights Templar". Another myth is about Bornholm's round churches being characterized by the architecture of the Knights Templar, that they are placed extremely precisely and in reality are astronomical observatories. Right here fiction by far exceeds facts. There is no documentation at all that the Knights Templar have been to Bornholm - but it is a good story.
The Krølle Bølle troll on Bornholm
Another good story is the one about Krølle Bølle. A little troll boy with only two curls, one on his head and one on his tail. And like so many other trolls he is a bit of a bully. Krølle Bølle belongs to the underground world and the family lives in a troll cave near Hammershus. The thing about trolls, they come out at night. You can experience Krølle Bølle's family, his father Bobbarækus Fillirækus, his mother Bobbasina and his sister Krølle Borra on a midnight visit. If you believe in trolls that is. You can also find him on various souvenirs around Bornholm and in an old children's picture book from 1946. That book is the first proof that Krølle Bølle's exists.
