1 Hej alle sammen = Hello everyone
Here we are; 7.B on Aaker skole. We are 26 pupils in our class. We are 350 pupils on this school, age 6-15. On our Island we have 10 public schools and 5 private. The pupils in our class either live in the town Aakirkeby (with 2000 inhabitants) or in the countryside. The pupils who live in the country go forth and back by bus. We hope you will enjoy our presentation of our Island BORNHOLM!

2 Facts about Bornholm Bornholm is one of the most eastern areas in Denmark. It takes 3 hours to go from Copenhagen to Bornholm; by car/bus/train through Sweden and by ferry. We have inhabitants on Bornholm. Here you see the populations that have lived on Bornholm in the past years. You can see that many people move away from this lovely island. Since a lot of people move away the number of inhabitants will fall…

3 More facts! When many people move away, it has a lot of consequences. For example: Schools are closing because there are not that many children. And a lot of shops are only open in the Summer season; in the Summer a big number of tourists come to see Bornholm and spend their holiday. Here you see the percentage of people on different ages, and you see that there are a lot of old people here. Age 0-9 Age Age Age Age Age Age Age 70+ 8,8 % 12,1 % 6,6 % 8,8 % 13,9 % 16,4 % 17,2 % 16,1 %

4 The size of Bornholm From Aakirkeby to North Bornholm there are 31 Kilometers. From Aakirkeby to East Bornholm there are 18 kilometers. From Aakirkeby to West Bornholm there are 16 kilometers. From Aakirkeby to South Bornholm there are 19 kilometers. Bornholm also have one of the biggest forests in Denmark Did you know that 23 % of Bornholm is forest? Hans Rømer, a forest knight, came and planted a lot of trees in Almindingen and made a fence around for keeping the animals away (so they would not eat all the plants). So as you can see Aakirkeby is nearly in the middle of Bornholm.

5 Natur Bornholm Natur Bornholm is an experience Centre, where you hear and learn a lot about Denmark. It is suitable for all ages Natur Bornholm is one of Bornholm’s sights. You can get a lot of information about Bornholm’s nature, and have fun at the same time. You can see a lot of animals fx. crocodiles, fish, mice, snakes, frogs and more.

You can experience: time travel, earthquake, dinosaur, bison, a big aquarium, crocodiles, outside el-car, shop, café etc. Many schools visit Nature Bornholm. You can find Nature Bornholm in Aakirkeby.

6 Round churches A round church is a special type of church construction, having a completely circular plan. On Bornholm we have four round churches; one in Nyker, Østerlars, Nylars and Olsker. And for that reason we are the place in Denmark with the largest amount of round churches, since there are only three in the rest of Denmark. In total we have 22 churches on Bornholm. Yellow: Olsker round church is the tallest and the most elegant, it’s built in 1150. Blue: Nyker round church is the youngest of them all, it’s built in 1200. Red: Østerlars round church is the biggest on Bornholm, it’s built in 1150. Black: Nylars round church is the best kept church, it’s built in 1100.

7 Almindingen Almindingen is the big forest that is the “Hearth of Bornholm”. Almindingen is the most beautiful part in the middle Bornholm Hans Rømer, a forest knight, was the man who planted Almindingen and he was born in 1770 and died in 1836. There hasn’t been forest all the time, in what we call Almindingen. After the last ice age Almindingen began to grow. With the help of Hans Rømer the forest began to grow even more. The most interesting places in Almindingen are definitely Lille Borg and Rytterknægten. Lille Borg is known to be one of the oldest royal places in Denmark dated back to year 1150. Lille Borg is also known to be a very beautiful place.

8 Bisons in Almindingen We have been lucky to get bisons on Bornholm. The bisons have been transported from Poland to Bornholm The bisons came to Bornholm in June 2012 When the project started 7 bison’s arrived, but now the number is 13. On Bornholm we have never had bisons before. The reason we got the bisons on Bornholm is as a tourist attraction and because for the nature. Almindingen, where the bison’s are situated , is ha. The red arrow shows you where the road is and the purple arrow shows you where on Bornholm the bisons are situated) The first 7 bison’s were bought for 4 million DKK (= ,58 EUR) On the map you can see where the bison live. You can also drive through the area with a car or you can walk.

9 The rocking stones On Bornholm there are 3 rocking stones, one in Almindingen, Rutsker Højling, and in Paradisbakkerne. The rocking stone in Paradisbakkerne is the largest. The stone weighs around 35 tons. The rocking stone is placed so it is able to rock. The rocking stone is 4x3x2 meters large, and is the only rock on Bornholm that can actually rock. In Almindingen you will find another big rocking stone on Bornholm. It is about years old, and weighs around 7 ton. There is a legend that says, the rocking stone is placed on a diamond, and that’s the reason why it can rock. But the diamond must have been removed, because the stone does not rock anymore!?

10 Rytterknægten Rytterknægten is a Stone Tower that was built in year 1856. Rytterknægten is the highest point on Bornholm. It was built as a memory of King Frederik the 7th. On a fantastic clear day you can see almost all around Bornholm from the top of the tower even the south coast of Sweden! Rytterknægten is situated 162 meters over the ocean and is almost in the middle of Bornholm in Almindingen.

11 Stone quarry on Bornholm
Bornholm is a rock island, and for that reason there is a lot of granite on the island. There are many stone quarries on Bornholm, for example Moseløkke stone quarry, Vang stone quarry, and Vestermarie stone quarry. There have almost always been stone quarries on Bornholm, where the workers chopped in granite and stones for roads, houses and sculptures. Many years a go, there were many small private stone quarries. Many immigrants came to Bornholm in to work in Already In 1901 the Swedish workers represented 28% of all working capacity. Today three of the stone quarries are still being used, by stone quarry workers (the granite is mostly used for roadconstructions)

12 Hammershus Hammershus is an old castle ruin. When Hammershus was used in the middle age, it was a prison and a refuge for the people. There have been a lot of war at Hammershus through the ages. The castles have been conquered by Danes, Germans and Swedes. The Germans had the castle from 1522 to year The Swedes got the castle in the year 1658 after the “Roskilde peace”. They actually got the whole island. They got Bornholm instead of the whole country. The same year the rebels killed the Swedish governor. We on Bornholm think that Hammershus is exciting because the story behind is interesting and the ruins are interesting see and there is also a beautiful view over the ocean from there (on a clear day you can see Sweden!)

13 Dueodde Beach The beach on Dueodde is fantastic. It is so beautiful. The sand is soft and white and the water is blue. You can swim, take a sunbath and you can go walking and have a picnic. Dueodde is in the of south of Bornholm.

14 Krølle-Bølle There is also an icecream named after Krølle-Bølle.
Krølle-Bølle is a troll, and he was invented during 2nd world war by a man called Ludwig Mahler for his son Ole Mahler. Maybe Krølle-bølle is one of the underground people… the underground people are said to live under the ground and have the size of a small child. They wear a red cap and wear clothes made of wool. Hej = Hi His name is Krølle-bølle because he has a curl on his head and a curly tail and two horns on his forehead Krølle-bølle is said to be born on the 76m tall Langebjerg in Sandvig. There is also an icecream named after Krølle-Bølle.
