Allinge and Sandvig were originally two separate cities, which today have almost grown together.
Allinge is full of life and happy days with good music venues and smokehouses. Allinge is the island's jazz mecca. Here are restaurants and good shops. Many boaters visit the city's charming port throughout the season.
Every year in the month of June (week 24) Allinge attracts up to 100,000 visitors when Allinge hosts Folkemødet - Denmark's policy festival, which is held under the open sky.
In Sandvig you are close to the magnificent scenery of Hammeren, Hammershus Slotsruin (castle ruins) and idyllic Hammerhavn, with boat services to the surrounding rock caves. Sandvig also offers a beautiful sandy beach.
