Karls Kammare

Small cave near Strömby

Karls Kammare is the name of a small cave near the settlement of Strömby in the north of Torsås Kommun. The next larger town is Påryd in the municipality of Kalmar and is about eight kilometres away. Torsås is 15 kilometres southeast of the cave.

According to legend, the cave is named after a man called Karl who was on the run from the wars in the 16th or 17th century. As a Carolinian, he was a soldier during Sweden's era of great power and deserted to escape the front in Europe. Hiding in the small cave, he was discovered by a huntsman when he made a fire and smoke rose from the crevice in the rock.

Karls Kammare is about 150 metres from the nearest road. A small bay at the side of the road offers space for a car. From there, just follow the signs into the forest until you find the entrance to the cave.
