  • It's a amazing botanical garden.
  • Very nice area to go for a walk.
  • This is a small but neat botanical garden just a stone's throw from central Visby. Perfect if you need a little quiet, or shade on sunny day.

Where to stay in Visby

What Visby lacks in accommodations, it makes up for in charm with its medieval houses, cobblestone streets, and churches--not to mention the preserved medieval wall and abundance of roses. The moderate to upscale hotels in the city center tend to fill up quickly, so be sure to book in advance. There are also a handful of guesthouses and pensions, along with a very limited selection of hostels. If you're open to a bit of a drive, look to the south to the town of Burgsvik, a resort town with more accommodations.
