Pre-Symposium Tour: “Bornholm, Mill Paradise”

A pre-Symposium tour was offered to Bornholm and Skåne. Bornholm is an island situated in the middle of the Baltic Sea. It is the only rocky island in Denmark, and often referred to as the “Sunshine Island” because it is one of the locations in Denmark with the most recorded hours of sunshine annually. This small island is also a mill paradise with 3 watermills, 3 post mills and 11 smock mills (in Denmark called “Dutch mills”). One of the post mills is the oldest windmill in Denmark, built in 1629. From there we continued through Skåne (southern Sweden), where 3 interesting windmills wre visited, and we reached Aalborg the 3rd September in time for the Symposium. The fee for the pre tour was EUR 600 including accommodation, transport by coach, bridge toll and ferries, entrance fees, 3 meals a day (except for lunch on 3 September).

30th August – 3rd September
