Medieval Hotel

by AnnabelleLee

Has anyone stayed in Medieval Hotel in Visby? I am going to stay there next year, and I would like to hear some opinions. :)

No, but if you look at my Visby cathedral photos on my Visby page, the last photo was taken just outside it. I think you'll enjoy it based on the gorgeous location if nothing else.

Re: Medieval Hotel

by AnnabelleLee

Thanks for the answer! The photos are great!;)
I know the hotel's location, thought it would be nice to have some comments on the service too. But anyway, I've already booked it. I fell in love with Visby the moment I set my foot there last summer.

Me too. We've just been back over New Year to see what it was like in winter. Fantastic! No tourists so we had the city to ourselves and had great food in super restaurants and enjoyed fossil picking on the beach.

Re: Medieval Hotel

by AnnabelleLee

wow! that sounds fantastic! I am also very curious what it is like there in winter - will go there for sure at some point in low season.

Do! You won't regret it. Lots of restaurants and souvenir shops are closed but what's open really feels more genuine and the top places stay open. Locals also talk to you more since they don't get as swamped by Stockholmers as in summer.

Travel Tips for Visby

Bike north!

by Sjalen

The coastline just north of the city walls has a great bicycle path along the sea and I urge all of you to hire a bike and set off for a lovely 4 kilometre ride passing a couple of camp sites and ending up at Snäck where you can round the amazing cliff at the little end of road circuit and find yourself at Snäck's sandy beach. Alternatively, you follow the Gotlandsleden bike trail up the hill at Snäck instead but then you're in for a whole daytrip or more along the northern coast. Should you feel like it, you could of course walk or run along the sea instead. Start just below the hospital in any case.

Pippi Longstocking

by MikeAtSea

Pippi is a nine-year-old girl, who lives with a complete lack of adult supervision. She is very unconventional, assertive, rich and extraordinarily strong, being able to lift her horse one-handed without difficulty. She frequently mocks and dupes the adults she does encounter, an attitude likely to appeal to young readers; however, Pippi usually reserves her worst behavior for the most pompous and condescending of adults. Pippi's full name is Pippilotta Delicatessa Windowshade Mackrelmint Efraim's Daughter Longstocking!
The island of Gotland was Pippi Longstockings home - since it was filmed just outside Visby!

Visbytravet - trotters in Visby.

by Dizzyhead

You go here to bet on horser, horses competing against other horses with waggon called trav in Swedish. It is a very popular thing to do here in Sweden, and especially when it is summer time and all the tourists from the mainland visit Visby.

St. Mary's Cathedral

by starship

Among Visby's oldest churches, the only one which is still in use today is St. Mary's Cathedral. This church was consecrated in 1255, and was lovingly restored between 1899-1907, and in 1945. Some scholars believe that after the devastation brought by Luebeck armies around the mid-13th century, Visby could not afford to maintain all of its churches, and so St. Mary's was the church chosen to remain open to the people and as such has been maintained and cared for. Hense, the ruins of many other churches are what is seen today.

The church is distinctive for a massive square tower on the western face between two slimmer towers on the eastern face. The church was built by wealthy German merchants and they chose to remember one of their own in the form of a chapel in the cathedral dedicated to Burgomaster Swerting who was executed in 1350.

A little tour around the inside of the cathedral will impress you. An elevated, heavy walnut & ebony pulpit carved in Luebeck, Germany, (see photo) is one of its striking features as is the 13th century baptismal font made of red Gotland marble. The natural dimness of the interior is disspelled by enormous brass chandeliers and a measured amount of light allowed in by the stained glass windows above the altar and along the side walls. The floor is comprised of smooth, flat blocks of stone engraved with the names of the dearly departed. The church exudes warmth and serenity. It was a pleasant visit but unfortunately there were too many others visiting it the day we arrived to really enjoy it.
