Ertholmene is a small archipelago located just northeast of Bornholm. The archipelago consists of Christiansø and Frederiksø, as well as the bird area Græsholmene. You move around on a small piece of history. After Denmark had lost Skåne, Halland and Blekinge, Chr. 5. (1670-1699), it is necessary to control the Swedish Navy in the Baltic Sea. Here he built the fortress Christiansø. On Christiansø Storetårn and Lilletårn on Frederksø, there were some impressive buildings with a large ring wall facing the sea. In 1855 the fortress was closed down but it still lies there and tells about a piece of Danish cultural history.

Today Christiansø functions as a well-functioning civil society with approx. 100 residents, such as a library, post office and school, as well as grocery and hospitality. The island also has its own rescue being, electricity and waterworks.
