Schäferiängar (sheep meadows) in Ottenby

Show map

In the far south, there is a large area that has long been used as a hayfield. Today, the whole area, except the northeastern parts where hay-making has been resumed, is grazed. In the 1540s, the grounds were part of a village with 19 farms that Sweden’s King Gustav Vasa took over and turned into a ‘kungsladugård’ (king’s barn) with a sheep and stud farm.
