Klemensker is a village in the north-western part of the Danish island of Bornholm. With a population of 621 (1 January 2015), it is located on a crossroads 13 km north-east of Rønne, 7 km east of Hasle and 12 km south of Allinge. It has gained worldwide recognition as a result of its award-winning cheese production.HistoryThe origins of Klemensker possibly date back to around 3800 BC with evidence of a community in today's Smedegade. A number of runestones have been found in the village while some of the roads are documented in records from the 14th century. The village inn is referred to in documents from 1548 but the first signs of homes around the church are from 1898. The first school opened in 1906. Only one of several dairies remains today while the old railway closed in 1953.Church and nameLike a number of Bornholm's localities, the name Klemensker is derived from its church, Sankt Clemens Kirke, the suffix -ker denoting church in the local dialect. There is documentary evidence of a St. Clement's Church from as early as 1335 when it is referred to in Latin as beati Clementis parrochia but the present church, constructed on the hilltop site of a former building, was completed in 1882, standing 114 meters above sea level. The interior renovation from 1960 includes work by Paul Høm from Gudhjem.World cheese awardBornholms Andelsmejeri, the island's only dairy, produces a variety of milk products and cheeses including its Danish Blue cheese which n 1980 and 1998 won the World Cheese Champion award in Wisconsin. Each year the international division, St. Clemens Food Products, exports some 4,500 tons of cheese to destinations around the globe.
