Atlas Obscura Smygehuk Utkiksplats (Sweden’s Southernmost Point)

A popular attraction across many nations is the country’s furthest cardinal and ordinal directions located within its borders. Depending on a country’s geometry, these points can be contested. Some locations that stake claim to these directions have signs and other monuments. For others, entire town identities have been crafted around these locations. The town of Smygehuk is one such place. 

The town advertises itself as Sweden’s southernmost cape. All around the fishing village, visitors can easily spot something labeled as “southernmost.” Visitors to the town will find a southernmost restaurant, shop, and even a southernmost toilet. However, what draws most people to the town is the point itself.
