In 1875 Grønbechs Gård was established as the warehouses for the Grocery Store Grønbechs. The company dates back to 1658, when the local hero Jens Pedersen Koefoed was a merchant here.
In 1999, the Society Grønbechs Gård was established to acts as the presenting platform for the artisans of Bornholm. The creation of the society was realized on the initiative of the then Mayor of Hasle Municipality, Birgit Rasmussen. The municipality donated the great building to the Islands Craft Community, and financed parts of the construction costs in cooperation with the EU, national and local funds. The municipality of Hasle also contributed with the annual running costs, which today is contributed by Bornholm Regions Municipality.
Grønbechs Gård was carefully refurbished and today stands with its 1500 square meters, beautiful and well maintained.
Bornholm Center for Arts and Crafts is a unique showcase for the local crafts community and the center is a great place to start before going onwards to the local artisans.
