Bunge is a small settlement situated in Gotland Municipality, Gotland County, Sweden. It is situated in the northernmost part of Gotland, southwest of Fårösund.

Bunge Church is in Bunge. Bunge also has a private airfield, the Bunge Airbase.[3] The hangar and the airfield are listed buildings.[4]

Gotland's (and one of Sweden's) most noted open-air museum is the Bunge museum. The museum has farms from three centuries (17th, 18th and 19th) and is also very active in practical old industry such as recreating tar kilns and charcoal piles.[5]
