Nice harbour. But BE EXTREMELY CAUTIOUS IF YOU DIVE from the diving tower. Big blocks of stone, like the ones from the wave breakers, are placed on the bottom of the basin. It seems like they have fallen down (or something like that) from the...More

This s a must stop for me to visit Karamelleriet and buy Rokkesten, to visit Pernille Bulow glass design, and to buy Johan Bulow liquorice. And then Svaneke bryghus for lunch or dinner. Charming places !

It's a lovely harbour with lots of boats to admire both tall ships, yachts, and fishing boats. They also have a variety of shops from toffee makers to transportable coffee shops all making up a nice atmosphere and location. It's well worth a visit.

I love seeing something that is actually used for what it was intended. Fishing boats and other commerce goes on here. That is unbeatable by any tourist facility one could put up. Svaneke is therefore my favourite on Bornholm, and there are nice cafes around...More
