This was definitely worth the trip out of Ystad. I wasn't sure we could arrange it because we didn't have a car (train travelers). But there's a regional bus there and back; check at the TI in Ystad for schedules and info - bus leaves...More

While the stones (most are maybe 2m tall) are interesting as an artifact of history, I found the hiking path & surrounding view more interesting. The Ales Stenar sits atop a bluff overlooking the sea, which is quite lovely. There is parking nearby (perhaps 500m)...More

Skånes own little Stonehenge! Lovely views! Don't miss the little fishing village Kåseberga where you can buy freshly cought fish and have a rest in one of the lovely restaurants there.

We came obviously outside the seasonas therewas barely anyone there. The view across the ocean alone is worth the trip. Was a bit of a climb as we carried our toddler but nothing too difficult... So worth it!!!

We visited this place, just because we stayed in the South of Sweden for a few days. Even I knew and read about it, I didn't expect much. But then it started at the (free) parking lot, which was quite huge, a lot bigger than...More

Great historic site, interestingly, nobody really knows, why it has been built. Fantastic position above the sea, just a short climb tu the beach. It is worth going there at different times of the day, since light canhes the impressions dramatically.

There is a short uphill walk to this site where a circular shape of a ship (we're told) made of rocks have been set up. It's a bit like a smaller Swedish Stonehenge. Some dates found materials back 5,500 years while others are 1,400 years....More

Really beautiful spot with great views over Kaseberga and beyond. Lovely at sunset. We stayed in Kaseberga and its a great walk up to the stones from the Harbour.

Very beautiful and interesting place. Have good walking shoes, you need to walk uphill to see the the stone ship. Then back to the harbor for some smoke fish or ice cream. It’s a must if you visit the southern part of Sweden.

A bit of a hike from the free well organised car parking and you are rewarded with breathtaking views. Allow an hour to see and enjoy the site.

I think there might be buses going there Monday-friday during winter, but not sure. Check with Skånetrafiken.
