During the summer season, various cultural events and concerts are held in the Kackelstugan theatre barn.
Halltorp Hage Nature Reserve
Halltorp is internationally known for its old oaks and rare beetles. While most people come to see the giant oaks, this area has several other interesting landscapes to visit.
All of Öland could be described as a great place for bird watching. A birding site, to use the bird watcher’s own vocabulary.
Common to the selected “birding sites” is the fact that they are easy to find, have parking, and can withstand a high number of visitors. Some of the sites are bird protection areas with prohibited access during parts of the year. However, the County Administrative Board of Kalmar has arranged for excellent paths and areas where you can move around all year round.
Visit a lighthouse
The Långe Erik (“Tall Erik”) Lighthouse, located on the island of Stora Grundet at the northern tip of Öland, is a 32-metre tall lighthouse built of limestone. The 138 steps lead up to the balcony that sits at a height of about 28 metres.
With its 41.6 metres, Långe Jan (“Tall Jan”), located at the southern tip of Öland, is Sweden’s tallest lighthouse. The view from the top is magnificent. The lighthouse is open during spring, summer, and autumn, and has the same opening hours as Naturum.
Greby Go-Cart, located between Kalmar and Borgholm, is Öland’s newest go-cart facility.
Lådbilslandet in Löttorp on northern Öland is a soapbox facility and one of the island’s major tourist attractions. Drive a car in a real, built-up miniature city, on roads winding through the landscape.
