Gudhjem, one of the most attractively situated villages in Denmark and virtually the closest you can get in Denmark to a village reminiscent of the Mediterranean, rocky coastlines or the mountains.
Many of the steep streets are hewn into the rock and one is so steep that downhill cycling is prohibited.
Throughout the past century, artists and craft-art workers have been connected with Gudhjem, inspired by its special light, its village charm and the countryside. The best known is probably Oluf Høst.
The terrain in and around Gudhjem is ideal for strolls of different lengths; it is extremely varied and has lots of paths through the woods and along the coast.
The tourist office is at Abogade street nr 9 and is open in the summer period.
