Address: Hästmanhult, 385 96 Hästmanhult

Tullahängen was in the 1600s a duty station that marked the border between Sweden and Denmark. The area has been cleared and fenced in with old fence. There is also a barbeque available.

When Gustav Vasa ruled during the early 1500s, he was in great need of money. He then introduced a variety of taxes that mainly affected the peasantry. A tax that especially angered the people of southeastern Småland was customs fee for livestock sales, which for decades had been conducted mainly to Ronneby. Right next to Tullahängen is a beautiful bike and walking path.

Maps and stage descriptions are available at the tourist office in Bergkvara. It is also possible to order material via email at turistbyran@torsas.se. Printable stage descriptions from our bike and hiking trails can be found below.
