City walk Visby in SwedishDate: Tuesday 10 jul 2018 - Wednesday 8 Aug 2018
The city centre of Visby has been on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1995. There is plenty to look at and listen to here – almost every old house, ruin and place has its own tale or legend.
The walk starts Donners plats, in front of the Tourist Information at 11am and proceeds to nearby Almedalen, a lush park in Visby's former harbour area. Today, Almedalen is well-known as the venue of Sweden's annual Politician's Week. The walk continues along Strandgatan, past the medieval warehouses, and on to Gunpowder Tower (Kruttornet). It stops at Fisherman's Lane (Fiskargränd), Visby's most photographed location, and the Botanical Gardens, an oasis with exotic trees and inspiring plant beds.
The tour visits several of Visby's church ruins with their long, exciting history, and the beautiful S:ta Maria Cathedral. It finishes at 1.30pm at Donnersplats in the centre of Visby, from where you have close access to more views, sights, shopping and cafés.
