This s a must stop for me to visit Karamelleriet and buy Rokkesten, to visit Pernille Bulow glass design, and to buy Johan Bulow liquorice. And then Svaneke bryghus for lunch or dinner. Charming places !

It's a lovely harbour with lots of boats to admire both tall ships, yachts, and fishing boats. They also have a variety of shops from toffee makers to transportable coffee shops all making up a nice atmosphere and location. It's well worth a visit.
