A great sight
Aug 2018 • Couples
Just besides the main road this is a fantastic sight! There are numerous windmills all across Oland. There have been over 2000 once. Used professionally, but also as a status icon amongst the farmers back in the days.

A few hundred have survived and at this spot you get some of the best surviving examples. And a bunch in a row, which makes a great sight and good pictures.

You even can get a look inside. There's a small parking lot at both ends and there were - despite the perfect weather - only few visitors. And most come and leave withing a matter of minutes. But bring some time to fully appreciate the wonderful place.
Be aware that Busses and Motorhomes have a seperate parking lot. I'm saying this because a tour Bus squeezed into the car parking lot when we've visited...causing much trouble, since the lot was too small to fit a tour bus. Almost hit my car when he was backing up....

18th century windmills. lovely
Jul 2018 • Couples
Well worth going to see, a set of 18th century windmills in a reasonable state of repair. One of them you can climb up the stairs and go in and see the mechanism

Well worth a visit.

Beautiful windmills in a row. In beautiful surroundings. A good place for a picnic. That's about it.

Windmills!
Jul 2017 • Couples
It was great getting to see so many windmills on Oland. They are in various stages of repair. Some more picturesque than others. The wildflowers along the route were just perfect in July.

Old windmills of Öland
Aug 2017 • Couples
Windmills, the entire island of Öland is full with them. These are really nice since there are so many of them together. Really nice to see though be careful with the busy road, can be dangerous when you want to take a picture and don't watch out, also with kids.

Windmills everywhere on the Island! :)
Sep 2017
Our large family drove onto Oland Island, and we saw so many windmills! In one area, we were able to go inside, but there were so many windmills that I do not remember where the exact location was to enter, but a sign was present for the entrance. We all did not plan to visit windmills, but from the main roads on the west side of the island are tons of them, and zero chance that you would miss them if you have vision. The whole Island is worth a visit, and we recommend this scenic route of windmills to families. Enjoy!

Some of 320 windmills on Oland, with a tip
Jun 2017 • Couples
Windmills are plentiful on Öland, so going to this specific location is only worth it if you are nearby.

The spot is special as there are 4 windmills in a row, making for a good picture, especially towards sunset.

Tip: drive a couple of kilometers north of that spot and you will find another group of windmills, which can be entered!

These windmills are always open (at least one of them) and you can go inside and visit them. There is also a nice poppy field by the windmills. Beautiful landscape!

This particular spot is nice yes but the fascination is about the very old wooden windmills which are actually all over the island, no need to drive so far in just to see them
