    Medieval Wall
    3 more images

    Orignally built in the 13th century, the medieval wall that surrounds Visby is the oldest in Northern Europe. It surrounds the entire city in a 2-mile circle and has 40 towers. There is even a drawbridge and a moat (which is now full of weeds). If you visit Visby be sure to take a walk outside of the wall and check it out. It is truly amazing.

    The visby port

    The Visby port is a crowded place in the summer. Boats and people everywhere, and even if you not are a boat owner anchoring in the harbour, it's still a great place for a walk in the late summer evening, it's always happening something in the port area.

    Ruins in Visby

    All over Visby you will find old houses, ruins and, of course, the old city wall. I would really recommend taking the time to just walk around looking on the old architecture, you will not find anything similar to this in Sweden.

    Go see the rest of the Gotland

    by Heinisuo Written Feb 25, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After seeing Visby one should go a step longer.
    I myself didn't see anything outside the old Visby, so I'm thinking to go there again some time.
    As I've understood the island of Gotland offers a great opportunities to bike around the island and see it by that way. Maybe I'll spend a week or two biking around the island some summer.
    Tips dealing with my plans are very welcome!

    Less impressive than the bigger ones, this old church from the mid 13th century or thereabouts is still worth seeing and you can enter the ruins between 11-17 summertime.
