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 its Hanseatic past. A stronghold and trading centre during the Viking period, it became a Baltic commercial hub in the 12C, was fought over by the Danes and Germans in the 15C, then fell to the Lübeck forces (who burned much of the town) in 1525. The highlights of this UNESCO World Heritage Site are its ramparts, its maze of medieval streets and its cathedral.
