Description

Jons Kapel ("John's Chapel") is a formation of high cliffs on the west coast of Bornholm. The rock formation is up to 40 meters high. The 108 steps of the staircase along the edge of the rock lead down to a rock ledge, known as the pulpit. From Jons Kapel there is a really good view of the breeding birds on the rocks. Among the birds you can observe are Razorbill, Common Guillemot, Herring Gull, Great Cormorant and Common Eider.

Access

You can start your trip to Jons Kapel in the small fishing port of Teglkås or in a specially prepared and well-marked parking lot above the cliffs. From there it is only a few hundred meters to the steep wooden stairs that lead to the pulpit.
