Ales stenar, the Swedish Stone Henge – Kåseberga

One of our favourite spots in Österlen. Climbing up the hill to walk amongst the gigantic formation of stones. Highly recomended!

”In between the sky and the sea in the hills above Kåseberga, just east of Ystad, you’ll find one of Sweden’s most enigmatic sights; Ale Stones. Some believe that the 59 stones is a burial monument. Others claim that the stones has served as an ancient astronomical clock , as they are positioned so that the sun goes down at the northwestern stone in summer and rises exactly at the opposite stone in winter.”
