WHERE: Sweden, Skåne: Kåseberga.  55°22’56.89″N 14° 3’17.06″E

HOW TO GET THERE: located 19 km east of Ystad, near the village of Kåseberga. You can park your car in the harbour or in the village from where it is a 700 meter slihtly uphill walk to the site.

WHEN: all year round.

WHAT TO DO: walk among the monolit stones, sit in front of them and admire the cliff-top views over the Baltic Sea with the paragliders catching some great winds from below the cliffs. If you enrich your visit with some stories about Vikings that built this boat shaped monument, the kids might feel the magic energy of the place as well as you do.

TIPS: go in the late afternoon, when there are not so many people anymore.
