    After overcoming the herds of cows, you end up in the middle of this tourist magnet. But you have to take it with you.

    Ales Stenar is the largest ship in Sweden and is located on the steep coast above Kåseberga. The walk up here can also be combined with a stroll in the nearby harbor. A visit is a must if you are on vacation here. There are wonderful photo opportunities - the often flying paragliders are the icing on the cake. Kurt Wallander also comes here from time to time to think.
