Källskär

Out there on the edge of the open sea, beyond small islets of the Kökar archipelago, unusual experiences await; fine classical statues and walled gardens alongside boulder fields and primordial rock formations, a harbour built in stone and a summer house designed for Baron Gustav Åkerhielm by finnish architects Reima and Raili Pietilä.

Since 1990 scolars and artists have resided periodically on the island. Källskär has become a source of inspiration for different forms of art, while serving as the origin for unique stories and anecdotes of people and encounters in the archipelago.
