This big boulder of Søstenen or Søstenen Lindelse is found at the meadow at Snaremose Sø, between Lindelse and Fuglsbølle on the island of Langeland. It is way out on some fields by some grassy trails, next to a horse-sheet.

Location: Vesterby Mark 500, 5900 Rudkøbing. Walk 260 metres east from Vesterby Mark 11, 5900 Rudkøbing and turn south on the grass-trail. Follow it to the sheet and stone for 370 metres.
It might be easiest to walk 360 metres along the hedge towards west from the house at Søndre Landevej 55, 5900 Rudkøbing. It is right behind the sheet.
GPS: 54.895422, 10.732028

Size: 2,3 metres high, 3,8 metres wide and 4 meters long.

Meaning of the name: The lake stone.

Material: Granite

Origin:

Legend: A troll woman got upset, at the time when Strynø Church was built. She did not like the sound of the church bell. In her anger, she took a large stone and threw it against the church to crush it, but her effort hit not. The stone landed where it is now located.
The sorceress did not give up destroying the church, so she filled her apron with gravel and stones to lay a bridge from Langeland over to Strynø. It did not work out for her either, because when she came out in the middle of Lindelse Nor, a hole appeared on the apron, so most of the "Bridge-material" fell into the water and formed the Flintholm area. Enraged, she tore her apron and threw it with the last remnants of gravel at the church, but the apron fell in the beach out by Fårevejles outer peninsula, and the gravel formed two small islands, Køue and As (Kueholm and Asholm), which are collectively known as Køuerne.

When toddlers in Klæsø, and the region round, about the old days asked how the little children came from, the answer was that the stork fetched them out by Søstenen. There should be a door in the stone, but it was not to discover.
