Vittsjö lies in the old border area between Sweden and Denmark. There are many legends about the lake in the centre of the village, and the area has a number of ancient monuments from the various wars in the 17th century. For example, Danish and Swedish troops clashed here in February 1612, and, when the Swedish king was about to flee across the frozen River Dragsån, he fell through the ice. Today there are, among other things, the remains of a large redoubt, reminding us of the battles that were once fought in this borderland. There is one sign at the car park by Café Sjöstugan in central Vittsjö and you will find a second sign from route 117, the northern exit from the village. Turn into the road towards Vittsjö Campingplats. Approximately 200 m after the turn there is a sign on the right-hand side by the entrance to Vittsjö Skans.
