These ruins are gorgeous and fascinating -- you'll get great photos of cliffs and ocean views and interesting for kids of all ages. Have good walking shoes and warmer layers just in case -- it gets windy up there, even in July.

Spent a couple of hours walking around here with the family. Nice view over the Baltic Sea, and you can even see over toSweden from here.
