A vibrant commercial centre at the top
Rønde is a commercial town with specialty shops, good supermarkets and restaurants. Over the year, there are many different activities in this town. For example, during the summer, there is a hawker’s market in June and Open by Night in July. In September, the event ”Stafet for livet” (relay for life) takes place in the town park – a large event with music, entertainment, relay race etc. for the benefit of The Danish Cancer Society. Behind the street with shops, there is a lovely town park with a large nature playground, where you can enjoy life after exploring the many shops of the town.
The town is located at the gateway to the national park Mols Bjerge, with a view of Kalø Bay and Mols Bjerge. Kalø castle ruins are located only 2 km from Rønde town centre and are a popular place to visit all year round for locals as well as guests. The castle was built on a desert island in Kalø Bay, which was connected to the mainland through an artificial dam. Today, the dam is still part of the approx. 1.5-km road to the ruins. On the parking lot at the road to the ruins, veteran cars from all over the country gather every Tuesday afternoon. Furthermore, the site is the starting place of many activities all year round and hikes in the nearby forests. The forests are plentiful in ancient monuments representing the entire period from the Stone Age to the historic present.
The town is centrally located in Djursland with excellent bus connections to Grenaa, Aarhus, Randers and Ebeltoft. The town and nearest locations of Rønde also have infant playgrounds, tennis, a golf course of 18 holes and a library.
