Sights and Attractions in Gotland: Visby
St. Nicolai Church Ruins
The church is right in the centre of Visby. It is one of the highlights of any Gotland visit.
This street is winding above the rest of Visby and giving the visitor an excellent chance to see the entire city and wonderful views of the coast.
The museum has collections of jewellery and other artefacts dating back over 8 000 years. The museum has collections spanning from the Iron Age, through the Viking Age and Hanseatic Period right up to the Middle Ages and beyond.
The Art Museum
The museum is the youngest of Gotland's museums but despite this there is a lot of exhibitions. Most of Gotland's artists are represented here, among others Sven X:et Erixson.
The Natural Museum
The museum shows how the island was formed and other ecological aspects of Gotland. Here you can see exhibitions showing the different landscapes, for example marshlands and forests. Many of the several thousand of fossils found on the island are exhibited here.
The Powder Tower (Kruttornet)
The tower was built in the 12th century to protect the harbour and it is the oldest monument in Visby.
The Sea Wall
The wall was built soon after the powder tower as a reinforcement against unwanted visitors. Over the years, gates and towers were added and making the city almost impregnable. The wall still stands today and is in excellent condition.
Lummelunda is a limstone cave with various stalactite and stalagmite formations, fossil remains and subterranean waters. A bus depart from Visby during the summer month.
Faro, north of Gotland, can be reached by a bus from the ferry port of Farosund. The island of Faro is also known as the Sheep Island and is characterised by grazing sheeps and small limestone huts.
Experience the nature. Gotland offers a great variety of nature with vast open space, blossoming meadows, beaches and lakes.
Ruins of the 13th and 14th century churches are a common sight in Visbly, giving the place a magical feel.
