Rønne is the largest town on the Danish island of Bornholm in the Baltic Sea.  It has a population of 13,579 (1 January 2015).  Once a municipality in its own right from 1970 until 2002, when Bornholm was a county with an area of 11.24 square miles, it is now the administrative centre of the Bornholm municipality.  As of 2014 between 11,000 and 12,000 inhabitants live in Rønne Parish, which is a narrow piece of land on the westernmost of the island and stretching north and southward comprising around a third of the area of the former municipality.  Knudsker Parish made up the rest of the former municipality.  Owing to its natural harbour and its strategic position in the Baltic Sea, Rønne has an interesting history coming under German and Swedish influence during its development as a herring fishing port.  Today, with its cobbled streets, half-timbered houses and interesting museums, it attracts visitors mainly from Denmark, Germany, Sweden and Poland.

Due to thermal lag effect of the Baltic cooling after Winter and warming after Summer, the Bornholm climate is delayed by about two weeks compared to Copenhagen.  With its late spring and Indian summers it is a popular vacation location for the Danes.
