According to a new report, Læsø has by far the most hours of sunshine of the year. The island of Bornholm, Denmark’s sunny island, is tilting from its base.
Bornholm has long been able to boast of being Denmark’s sunny island. But now it’s over. Nobody beats Læsø when it comes to hours of sunshine.
With up to 1,951 hours of sunshine per year, the island in the Kattegat is the sunniest municipality in the country. It shows a measurement that has been made over the past ten years.
When the TV2 Nord reporter meets the Mayor of Læsø, Tobias Birch Johansen, he is wearing a Hawaiian shirt and sunglasses.
– So we run around here and it’s nice. A trip south is not attractive for us, says the mayor.
On Læsø they hope that the official title as Denmark’s sunny island can attract tourists.
– We will be an even more attractive island and we look forward to welcoming even more guests, says Gitte Melchiorsen, Head of Tourism and Economy on Læsø.
Bornholm has been the Danes’ favorite holiday island for decades, but on Læsø they are sure that they can give the rocky island a back wheel.
– Læsø is the best place in the world, says Mayor Tobias Birch Johansen.
