Borgholm Harbour, Öland

Road Trip 2018, Part 14








Borgholm is the main city on the island of Öland. It has only around 3000 inhabitants but attracts a lot of tourists in summer. The huge grey monstrosity of a building hovering in the background of the last photos here is the ruins of Borgholm Castle; first built in the second half of the 13th century, but destroyed in a fire in 1806. (We’ll be going there for a closer look in my next road trip post.)

Weekend Reflections

  1. Looks like a beautiful little harbor. Looking forward to getting a closer look at the castle!

  2. Wonderful boat photos! I love the streamlined two story yacht with the canvas roof. I am surprised that the building was a castle! It just doesn't look like one from here, so many windows! Can't wait to see and read more.

  3. Nice little quite area by the look of it, not many boats either.

  4. What a wonderful trip you were / are on! My favourites are the open rowboats. I can see myself out on a quiet calm sunny day, poking my nose into bays and islands, and having a warm snooze in the bottom of the boat, cradled by the waves.

    1. Kate, the trip was one week back in mid July. I took enough photos to make it last a lot longer on the blog, though! :)

  5. Wow luxurious boat capture lovely . Keep commenting on my blog because I love your comments .

  6. such a beautiful marina, and so very many different types/styles of boats. beautiful photos of all of them. I love that windmill header. just stunning..... I am with Ginny, the castle doesn't look like a castle.

    1. Sandra, the photo in the header has been up for a while and is actually from another trip back in 2015. It's a slightly different type of windmill than the ones we saw on Öland. But the landscape and colours similar to this year, so I didn't bother about changing the header...

  7. There are certainly enough boats of different shapes and sizes to keep a keen photographer entertained. They make lovely images.
