Self-Guided Audio Walking Tour Through Kurt Wallander's Ystad

A self-guided audio walking tour through Ystad, based on Henning Mankell’s Kurt Wallander short story ”The Death of the Photographer”.<br><br> It is a chilly spring morning in 1988. Police detective Kurt Wallander is having breakfast when he is alerted that a local photographer has been found brutally murdered. The events of the murder are curious, and it becomes even more strange when Wallander finds a photo album that contains a grotesquely distorted image of himself at the crime scene.<br><br>This audio tour is self-guided via a GPS-based app downloaded to your smartphone. There will be clues and evidence material hidden in your surroundings – features that are triggered to show up on your mobile screen when you get close to them. Through sound, images, and exciting puzzles you will be challenged to use your detective skills to solve this case. This walking tour is perfect for those who want to go sightseeing in Ystad in a fun and flexible manner, as well as for audio book- and puzzle game fans

I just happened to read about Ales Stenar a few days before departing on a trip from Vestfold, Norway to Poland via ferry from Ystad, Sweden. Ales Stenar is about 15 kms east of Ystad, close to a cozy little fishing village called Löderup. It is a brisk uphill walk from Löderup to the top of a large open meadow where the stones are situated. When you reach a certain point, you see the outline of the stones against the sky. Very majestic. The vast meadow reaches southwards to high cliffs that tumble down to the Baltic Sea. Several folks showed up shortly before sundown to get the ultimate Ales Stenar experience. It is a powerful place and a must see if you are in the area.

Very beautiful place, up on a cliff overlooking the Baltic Sea. Despite the monument is not as impressive or old as other megalithic places around the world, it is still quite fascinating, due to the position on the hill and the amazing view. It is also a bit mysterious and a must see if you are in the area. It is quite well organized with a big parking, clear signs and good path up the hill.

Swedens Stonehenge and Swedens oldest preserved ring of standing stones. Magical feeling when land meets the sea. Loads of people during summer so be either early or late!
