Places to see

 

When in Kumlinge there are a few places you just have to visit:

- S:t Anna church, Kumlinge
The church is located aprox. 1 km west from the central village on Kumlinge. The medieval stone church with its inner roof paintings and with love tended graveyard is well worth a visit. During summer the church is open mon-sat 10-12 am and 2-6 pm

- Old Pharmacy, Kumlinge
The pharmacy on Kumlinge operates in a small house with original interior since the pharmacy started. It is definately worth it to buy some aspirin and check out the beautiful and still operating pharmacy.

- Monument of the Kumlinge battle

This stone is on the hill next to the pharmacy. It was risen to commemorate the battle of Kumlinge when in 1808 a few hundred Kumlingers fought off a Russian troop right on the fields beneath the monument.

- "Maypoles"
In June Midsummers eve is celebrated all over Åland. Every village has its own distinct maypole. The poles remain in place during all summer, making its decorations wither away along with summer.
