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.
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.

Meaning of the
name: The lake stone.
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.
