Birdwatchers paradise, as well as nature lovers. So much to enjoy. It’s at the southern tip of Oland and well worth the trip. You pass numerous windmills and quaint old churches on the way and the wildflowers were beautiful in July.

This is one of the best places in Sweden for watching migrating birds, so the Ottenby Naturum should be well known for anyone interested in bird watching. The place is located on the southernmost tip of Öland and takes around an hour to drive after...More

Interesting nature center, even for non-birdwatchers. There are some nice souvenirs you can buy, and help the center and its animals. There is information about the work carried on in the area.

Nice place to visit on a sunny day. Unfortunately it was not high season when we visited, so everything was closed. Very nice area for walking!!
