From September 29 to October 2, we celebrate the beautiful world heritage city of Visby with lots of exciting events!
Visby Day and Culture at Night are for many one of the highlights of autumn and are equally fun for all ages. The World Heritage City is celebrated with World Heritage walks, shopping, fashion shows, flea markets, exhibitions, art, good food, dance, music and much more. There is probably no other day of the year that offers as many different events in Visby as this one.
At Stora torget in the middle of Visby, there will be a market with both delicacies and handicrafts to buy home. If you don’t find what you’re looking for, Visby’s many shops are open all weekend. When darkness falls on Saturday evening, Visby Day turns into Culture at Night with concerts, theater and other exciting events.
In a hurry? It is actually possible to experience at least the main attractions in Visby in just a few hours. The city may have been a medieval metropolis, or Medieval Manhattan as it is sometimes called, but it’s still a relatively small city that is easy to grasp. This guide will take you to some of the most basic sights in Visby, but do not worry. The range of attractions is huge and you will discover countless things along the way.
Silver Treasures, Vikings and medieval buildings. Gotland has a long and fascinating history and is the natural link between the past and the present. Many of the finds can be found on either Gotland museum or Bunge Museum, others stand untouched, for you to discover.
