Hotel and attractions in Visby on Gotland
Visby on Gotland is a popular paradise among many holidaymakers. Here you find tranquil beaches with crystal clear waters, charming restaurants and one of Sweden’s finest golf courses, Visby GK. If you are travelling to Gotland with children, we recommend a trip to the amusement and waterpark Kneippbyn just outside Visby or exploring the exciting Lummelunda Cave. For bird-lovers, a boat trip to the nature reserve on the island of Stora Karlsö is most definitely a must.
The World Heritage city of Visby enjoys a reputation as one of the best-preserved medieval Hanseatic cities, and it’s no coincidence that a medieval festival is held here every year. Just before the holiday season starts in earnest, Visby in Gotland hosts the annual Almedalen Week where politicians from across Sweden gather to discuss the topics of the times.
But Visby and Gotland offer more than mere summer memories. Indeed, this Baltic archipelago is worth a visit absolutely any time of year. One of the world’s largest motorcycle races, GGN - Gotland Grand National, takes place every year in Tofta, and Fårö with its many evocative rock formations – and island once home to the legendary filmmaker Ingmar Bergman – is a wonderful location any season of the year, and you should most definitely visit the Blue Lagoon. In addition, there are plenty of ateliers and galleries across the island with Gotlandic design and crafts in the form of ceramics, concrete, wool, leather and textile.
If you are planning to visit Gotland next summer and are looking for hotel in Visby, First Hotel Visby will be located just 800 metres from the ferry terminal. The brand-new hotel is under construction and opens its doors in June 2019. The hotel has 90 modern rooms, most offering a balcony and sea view.
