Brief history

Brännö Island in the archipelago of the west coast of Gothenburg, Sweden, is perhaps mostly known because of an old song made by Lasse Dahlkvist, namely “Dans på Brännö brygga” (Dance on Brännö dockside). In the old days the inhabitants of this Island where mainly pilots and farmers. The magnificent view at the pilot cabin bares witness to this era. On Galterö Island there’re flocks of sheep to be seen to this day.
