The Port of Hammer is located at the northern tip of Bornholm. Hammer Harbor is a former shipping port for Bornholm granite. The harbor is beautifully situated at the foot of Hammershus castle ruin. There is no town attached to the port.
The harbor does not offer many facilities but is in turn situated in beautiful nature. Breakfast can be ordered in the small kiosk at the harbor.
Hammershus Borgruin is the remains of a medieval castle, which is believed to have been founded around 1225. The castle has been used as a state prison, and has, among other things, known prisoners such as Leonora Christina and Corfitz Ulfeldt. In 1743 Hammershus ceased to exist as a fortress, and was subsequently used as a quarry. However, Hammershus is preserved in 1822 and every effort has been made to restore the ruins as much as possible.
