This station was constructed to guide ships into the newly founded town of Mariehamn, during the reign of czar Alexander II. Pilots would live on this island and enter visiting ships as they approached, helping them to navigate the treacherous passage to Mariehamn. A lighthouse was soon constructed here as well.

This guesthouse - which also served as a courthouse - was founded in the 17th century. Here we serve you a classic Nordic two course dinner. After dinner, it is time to enjoy a sauna by the beach, before leaving to return to Mariehamn.
Visit the only castle in Åland and peek out through the same window that king Gustav I once scouted from, or breathe the chilly air of the same prison cell where king Erik XIV was held.

Rödhamn (Red harbour) is the last bastion before the vast expanse of the southern Baltic sea. In summertime, this place is very popular for people to visit.
