    The Kåseberga Stonehenge (better known as "Ales stenar" or "Ale stenar" / German "The Stones of Ale")) consists of 59 stones (which look like the Hinkelsteine ​​of Obelix) and is located directly on a hill about 37 meters high the Baltic Sea coast near Kåseberga in the south of Sweden. The coastline is characterized by a steep drop off to the sea edge.
    The 0.5 to 1.8-ton stones are arranged in the form of a ship. The approximately three-meter-high steven stones of the bow and stern are the largest, the height of the stones decreases from there to the center.
    You should definitely take a look! Enjoy nature!

    I find the astronomical background for the placement of the stones particularly interesting.
    There are also very good explanatory boards nearby, which show how this formation was calibrated as a calendar.
    I have added the relevant pictures.
