Visit Visby and explore a World Heritage Site

Publicerad 28 feb 2023

Visby is a beautiful Hanseatic town located on the island of Gotland, Sweden. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site due to its importance as an example of a Nordic medieval city. The town is known for its well-preserved medieval architecture which includes charming cobblestone streets, colorful buildings, and historic churches.

Do a walking tour (guided if you prefer) of the town’s historic sites. A great way to learn about the history and culture and to see its many architectural gems up close. Take a leisurely stroll around the town’s ancient defensive wall and enjoy stunning views of the town and the surrounding landscape.

A must-visit spot in Visby is the Botanical Garden, home to a wide variety of plant species including many rare and exotic plants.

For those interested in outdoor activities an excursion to the southern cliffs with spectacular views of the sea and the surrounding countryside is a must. There are of course a wide option of cafes, lunch- and dinner restaurants in Visby. Many of them serve delicious local specialties.
