The Town of Roses & Ruins

Visby boasts a rich history with tales of the Viking Age when it was a stronghold and trading post, a flourishing medieval period, and its membership in the powerful Hanseatic League.

Today Visby is best known as the Town of Roses and Ruins; you can stop and smell the blooms in all their glory in the Botanical Garden, and visit an array of impressive ruined medieval churches.

Wander a maze of cobbled streets in the old walled city, bicycle through beguiling countryside and dramatic coastal scenery, cast a line on a fishing expedition, or take a few swings at one of the seven excellent golf courses.
