Simrishamn, which is unofficially called the capital of Österlen, dates back as far as the 1100th century. Here the houses are picturesque and pastel colored with beautiful carved doors. On the beach Sandhammaren, the sand is as white as the islands in the Caribbean, perfect for sunbathing and swimming during summer days.
Österlen - An important part of Sweden
In addition to being a fantastically beautiful place, perhaps the most beautiful in Sweden, Österlen is also an important part of our elongated country. Österlen is usually called Sweden's barley shed as a large part of our domestic production of barley, rapeseed and wheat takes place here. Without the rolling wheat and rapeseed fields here, we would need to import much more grain to meet our needs.
