Bornholm, Denmark: Pearl of the Baltic

Legends abound on the island of Bornholm (pop. 40,000), associated with the Knights Templar who are said to have left secrets inside the island’s four round churches. Windmills, picturesque coastal towns and the ruins of a medieval castle make Bornholm worth exploring by car, on foot or on a bike. It is accessible by fast ferry (3 hrs) direct from Copenhagen, and by overnight ferry from Køge, which is 45 minutes by train from Copenhagen.
