Visby The Essential
Recommended
Seen from the sea, Visby appears to rise out of the water on terraces. The magnificent medieval fortified town and church ruins are vestiges of a Hanseatic past. It was a fortified town and trading hub with the East in Viking times. From the 12C, the Germans made it a Baltic trading centre. Fought over by the Danes and Germans in the 15C, it fell under the Lübeck army in 1525. The town is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and its ramparts, maze of medieval streets and cathedral should not be missed.
