Norsholmen

Norsholmen is a peninsula on the northern tip of Fårö.

Primarily known as a place for resting birds. Norsholmen not only has an interesting bird life, but there are also several interesting plants.
Among other things, here is Gotland’s only occurrence of dwarf locks.

Here are industrial remains from the 1910s, when during the first world war a shipping port for Gotland limestone was built. Today, only concrete foundations and a few stone piles remain.

Here you will also find ancient remains such as a medieval cemetery and a few burial fields.

At the far end of the cape is also Fortuna, well visible above the water surface.
Fortuna was a German cargo ship that lost in an autumn storm in 1969 when she was on her way with a cargo of caustic soda from Örnsköldsvik to Antwerp.
