Welcome to Ottenby and southern Öland.

Ottenby, on the very south of the island of Öland, is one of the top areas for birding in Sweden - 377 species have been observed here. A visit to Öland offers fantastic opportunities for bird studies all the year round.

Ottenby Bird Observatory was founded in 1946 and has ever since performed studies on migrating birds. Around 20000 birds are ringed each year. Also, the bird observatory is involved in bird migration research projects on the island of Capri, Italy, and in Nigeria.

Visit the tourist exhibition centre Ottenby Naturum and and learn more about the wildlife and culture of the area.
