It is located in the southern part on the island of Öland and is named after the ferries that used to be the only connection to the mainland.

Lerkaka Vaderkvarnar

Reviewed By Paul F - London, United Kingdom

Having spent the day travelling around Southern Öland we had become very attached to the little windmills we saw at every turn and we're delighted when we came across the five at Lerkaka! With care you could look inside and they make such an impressive sight with the blue sky and field if yellow oil seed rape behind them, not to mention the interesting contrast with the five wind turbines in the distance. Our only request is for more information about the history and purpose of the mills. Was it flour production or drainage or both? Well done Öland for preserving so many of these fascinating mills.

Reviewed By Tigram1 - Kalmar, Sverige

its an nice place special if you visit it together with the "Skördefest" the last weekend in September. Last time I very there they had illuminated the whole fort and even the chaptel with big candles.
You could see it on long distance in the dark September night.

Skansen SPA

Reviewed By 6carmen6 - Gotland

The best thing with this place is the location. It is a five minutes walk to the water and of course the little harbour with some nice petite restaurants and bars.
The problem with Skansen is that they want too much and often the intentions lands in a suffle'e.
There is a restaurant that is ok, but never reaches the top. Of course you can get satisfied eating there, but that means that your stomac is full, without you having memories of how good it was.
There is also a popular whiskycellar. Skansen seems to be repairing and renovaiting most of the time, which of course, is ambitious. It is a shame though that this nice old and famous Restaurant and Hotel nowadays moore look cheap with fake windows and other renovated areas without style. There is a nice Spa with a pool though!

Paradisverkstan

Reviewed By Baukje D - Arnhem, The Netherlands

We were here on a rainy day. The atmosphere inside was very nice. It's a good combination of a store and a cafe. The garden looked nice.
Nothing on the menu was very outstanding though. The coffee was not good, my lemon pie was pretty ok though.

Tager man Øland rundt, er det et meget hyggeligt stop lige at se kirken på vejen. Den er som Vestkystens kirker lidt bar, ikke mange krummelyrer. Det er et fint kirkeskib.

Nice souroundings with lots of fantastic sculptures in The park close to The see. Provocative art inside but also with a touch of humoristic thoughts. As good art, always contribute with memorable moments ?

Olands Djur & Nojespark

Reviewed By Laggeman - Lund, Sweden

We keep coming back to this great family friendly park, and for very good reasons.
The entire park is just perfect for the whole family, from the very youngest to the elder.
All attractions are free once you get in and there are plenty to choose from for everyone.
The animal park have a great selection big and small, on land and in the air. The 360-degree Monkey-walk is really cool too!
My personal favourite are the lions.
So many rides in the amusement park also, evenly set on the ages from young kids to older ones.
The Pirate Island is so great on a hot day, just jump in your swim wear and drop in to any of the pools.
I recommend a two day visit if possible to cover everything.

At the end of a narrow road among the fields you find this runestone. It has both Thor's hammer as well as a Christian cross. - Remember to walk all the way round the stone...

Bla Jungfrun Nationalpark

Reviewed By Lillemusen - Stockholm, Sweden

The boat ride takes about 80 minutes and can be rough. In case of bad weather it is cancelled. The season is very short and might even be over for this year. The boat leaves Oskarshamn 9.30 and the scheduled return is 14.00. Book online to secure places, otherwise you have to hope for someone not showing up if you decide to simply go to the boat without booking. The island is very small and the tour is actually a walk around it. There are no buildings, shops, even modern toilets, just rocks, trees and the sea. Worth 280 sek for a return ticket.
