The church of Kökar is dedicated to Saint Anna and was built in 1784. Inside there is a font from the 13th century. Next to the church lies the ruins of the medieval Franciscus monastery.
Kälskär lies in the outer archipelago of Kökar and is one of the most iconic destinations of the archipelago, famous for a smooth rock formation resembling a cauldron, presumed to have been shaped during the ice age. During the summers scholarship artists reside here to seek inspiration in the barren wilderness. Here visitors can find a statue of the gods' messenger Mercury as well as a beautiful garden.
In western Kökar there is a nature trail stretching through impressive nature where you can see bronze age and iron age ruins, ancient graves, a stone labyrinth and remains of WWII fortifications.
A map can be collected at the municipal office weekdays 10:00-14:00.
These remains are from a habitation for seal hunters from about 1000 BC.
This Museum is located in the old school in Hellsö. An exhibition in film and photographs shows the life in Kökar from the 19th century until the 1940s. There are more exhibitions here, among them an exhibition of old boats and motors and a blacksmith. For visits outside of season please call +358 457 524 4077
