Dröstorp Ödeby (abandoned village)

Show map

From Skarpa Alby, it is possible to walk out to Dröstorp Ödeby, which dates from the 18th century. Dröstorp is an example of the attempt to break new soil on the poverty-stricken Öland during the strong population growth in the 18th and 19th centuries. At the end of the 19th century, the village was abandoned. Today, the old cattle path, well and ruins of the limestone buildings remain.
