This is a tender port.
Öland is rather sparsely populated, with most of the land consisting of farmland or in the north woods. It is separated from the mainland by the Kalmar Strait and connected to it by the 6 km Öland Bridge, which opened on 30 September in 1972.
The city is best known for its once-magnificent fortress which is now ruined.
The Swedish Royal Family has its official summer residence at Solliden Palace a couple of kilometers outside the city center. The Crown Princess Victoria's birthday is annually celebrated on July 14 at the Borgholm Sports Field.
Taking the bus is the most convenient way to get around on the island since they cover most of the island and can get you within biking distance of interesting sights and beautiful beaches. Bringing a bike is recommendable, and convenient, as passengers are allowed to bring bikes on the buses. It's also the best way to experience the unique landscape of Öland. There are very nice biking trails along the long coast of Öland.
