The story of Simrishamn
Originally the city belonged to Denmark, but after the Peace of Roskilde in 1658 the Danes had to evacuate southern Sweden. Although the inhabitants were assured in the peace treaty at that time of their rights and privileges, the Swedish culture and customs prevailed. Simrishamn and the population was now completely Swedish.
Other historic sites include the mystical Ales Stenar at Kåseberga, which is almost 70 meters long and 20 meters wide, making it one of the largest known stone settlements. It is located just a few kilometers from Simrishamn. In total, the monument consists of 59 rocks, each with an estimated weight of 0.5 to 1.8 tons. The largest stones mark the bow and stern of the ship. O
Between Ystad and Simrishamn lies the castle of Glimmingehus, which is considered to be one of the best preserved castles in Scandinavia.
