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.

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.

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

Here you'll see the unique windmills that are a symbol of Öland, where parking is excellent, a gift shop and a hut for drying Flax along with a view of the Baltic Sea.
