I have always liked light houses. This one is located at the Southern end of the island Öland. The drive is already great, it is very flat, so you have great views over the ocean. There is a parking directly at the light house, you...More

A sunny day in June and the nature reserve and light house were both special places. As others have said, the light house is all about the view from the top, there are no other aspects to it. SK30 per person, but well worth it...More

We went to see Långe Jan in May 2017. See the tips at the bottom! The lighthouse is located at the southern tip of Öland. The lighthouse was built in the late 18th century, and it's amazing it is still standing today. In high season,...More
