Visby is one of the most remarkable towns in Sweden and Scandinavia, and it is situated on the west coast of Gotland Island. The population figure is about 23,000. It is known for the city wall, the Cathedral and the church ruins. In 1995, the city was declared a UNESCO World Heritage site.
During the Swedish summer Mid June - Mid August Visby is crowded. It is one of the best party cities in Sweden in the summer. Many Visby residents leave during these hectic months and rent their apartments. During the rest of the year the atmosphere is quite different.
There are several tours of the Old Town during the summer, most available in Swedish, but occasionally in other languages, and they are sometimes available for group bookings. The best bet is to check with the Tourist Centre (Skeppsbron 4-6, 62157 Visby) what guides are available in your language. Also ask whether you need to get a ticket before the tour starts or if you pay when you meet up.
Classic Tour of Visby  Available in English, German and Swedish.
Sexualiteten i den medeltida staden  Available only in Swedish. Adults 95SEK, Children 9-12 years 50SEK.
Other Events and Activities
Boda Borg  Fun and challenging quests for people of all ages.
There are only two ATM machines in the old town and port area: one at Donners Plats, just as you come up from the water front and one on Adelsgatan. Along the Östercentrum there are several others.
Most shops close at 5pm on weekdays, 3pm on Saturdays and are closed on Sundays.
Adelsgatan This is the major shopping street, and by far the most touristy. Don't be discouraged though, it has plenty of interesting shops selling small trinkets and local handicraft. If you venture off this street you'll get to see the beautiful alleys and the smaller streets, which are less crowded, and there are smaller shops hidden here and there.
Sankt Hans Quarter and Sankt Hansgatan - some clothes and design shops
Östercentrum (exit the old city through the Österport gate) Modern pedestrian shopping district with most of the usual European retail outlets, as well as banks, pharmacies, and fast food joints.
Gotlandsdricke is a local type of beer. It is no longer legal to sell, but it's still legal to make it yourself so if you ask around you might be able to find someone who makes it. Back in the day, every farm had their own recipe.
