Welcome to Southern Öland

Fortresses, a zoo and a charming farm village are southern Öland’s star attractions. The largest settlement is Färjestaden (Ferry Town), although the town lost its purpose somewhat after the bridge was built (despite recent efforts to rejuvenate the old jetty).

South of Färjestaden, the entire island is a Unesco World Heritage site, lauded for its unique agricultural landscape, its continuous use from the Stone Age to today, and being peppered with runic stones and ancient burial cairns.
