But presumaby a directory instead.

If the last parameter to ln is an already existing directory the symbolic link will be 
placed in that directory with a name which is the last component of the thing it 
points to.

However your problem is that you've got the things the wrong way around.
It is

ln -s [thing being pointed to] [where to put the link]
