At The Branch (Grenen), a sand spit and Denmark's northernmost point, the North Sea and Kattegat meet. You can literally stand with a leg in both seas. The seas have different densities so do not mix, producing an amazing effect – a distinct line where the waters meet, stretching from Denmark’s tip out into the sea.

Four of Denmark's seven medieval round churches (rundkirke) are located on Bornholm.

There are rumors that some of the churches were associated with the Knights Templar.
