Natural Features and History

Konungsskär and the nearby islands are barren and rocky. The old tenant farm is surrounded by a beautiful meadow, still grazed by sheep in the summer. After the end of permanent habitation in 1916, the island was used as a base for hunting and fishing trips. Famous Finnish Marshal Carl Gustaf Mannerheim also visited the hut in September 1926.
