Experience one of Sweden's most unusual Bronze Age sites!

The area containing ancient remains from the Bronze Age measures approx. 247 acres and consists of large stone circles and a large number of monumental cairns. The largest cairn has a diameter of 24 m and one of the ship-formed stone formations is 40x7 m. The size and number of graves suggests that the area was of central significance during the Bronze Age, as the sea came in here.

No signs. Turn right by the Göljhulte caves, after 2,5 km turn left on a gravel road by a farm.
