Important Port Matters

Port of Roenne A/S serves as the gateway to the island of Bornholm, situated in the Baltic Sea. Renowned as one of Denmark's largest and most sought-after cruise destinations, the harbor naturally attracts ships navigating the Baltic Sea region. This popularity is attributed to Bornholm's distinctive nature, rich culture, and historical significance. In line with latest market trends, we have initiated the new expansion of our western port facilities to enhance maneuvering capabilities, enlarge quays, and deepen water depths for cruise ships. As of April, 2024, we offer a new 400-meter-long quay, a water depth of 11 meters, and improved maneuverability.
