Monthly Climate Averages for Christianso Island Denmark

 

Sightseeing:

Christianso is more like a miniature version of Denmark's Bornholm Island when considering its beautiful and inspiring scenery. At the same time, it might be a bit like Christiania because the artists that settled here have made it into an (unofficial) artist colony. No dogs, no cars and several nudist beaches. You can do the island by bike (or on foot) in about half an hour.

A beautiful small island. During the day, many tourists come by boat but leave in the late afternoon. In the evening a walk around the island is extremely peaceful - it's just yourself and the seagulls. 125 people live on the island.

Tours Excursions Transportation:

Tiny Christiansø lies in the open sea east of Bornholm and is part of the archipelago known as Ertholmene. One of the most remote sites in Denmark, Christiansø is one of only two inhabited islands within the Ertholmene chain, the others being set aside as bird sanctuaries.

No cars are allowed on the island.
