Bornholm Art Museum is situated about six kilometres north-west of Gudhjem in one of the most spectacular landscapes in Denmark. The museumњs floor space covering 4,000 m▓ is dispersed over three levels, following the natural slope of the terrain down to the rocky coast. In former times, people flocked to the area because of the supposed curative powers of the sacred spring (Helligdomskilden) found here. Today, the spring symbolises activities, experiences, recreation and spiritual development. The spring now bubbles out of a fountain and flows through a gutter the entire length of the building, before being released into the Baltic Sea through a small wishing well. This makes the building itself, regarded as a nonpareil of Scandinavian architecture, an artistic experience in its own right with its bright, lovely rooms.
