At the southeastern-most corner of Skåne, atop a moderately high cliff overlooking the Baltic, stands Alesstenar: an eye-shaped formation of standing stones whose raising has been dated to pre-Viking times, somewhere around the C7th.
The stones are well worth the trip, thanks to this dramatic setting, though please avoid the hoary old jokes from This Is Spinal Tap—ask your grandad, the one with the leather jacket he just won’t give up—and be sure to leave the local pagans alone if they’re having a ceremony when you visit. You wouldn’t wander around a church while there was a service going on, now would you?
This is about as far as you could realistically go on a cycling daytrip from either Ystad or Simrishamn. It’s quite a ride from either of them, though, so you’ll be glad to know there’s molluscs and fish for sale (whether cooked or fresh) from the little harbour at the bottom of the cliffs, as well as assorted other eats that aren’t from the sea.
Feel free to park up your bikes (or whatever other vehicle you may have access to) in the nearby village of Kåseberga, but bear in mind they don’t gain anything from your visit apart from an increase in traffic, so be considerate. You wouldn’t want the local kids to let your tyres down while you were off walking…
