In 2018 the new Cruise pier was constructed, allowing two large Cruise vessels to dock simultaneously.
Combine excellent dedicated cruise facilities with the fact that Visby is 1-night sailing from all the major Baltic Cruise ports, and the perfect destination is a fact.
Visitors can enjoy a wide range of options around this old walled Hanseatic today UNESCO heritage `inhabited historic town`. The 27 remaining towers along the 3-km plus ring wall is a perfect setting for a stroll. The names of towers and walkway reveals the historic trades and important craftmanship from the past. Encounter a variety of history, shopping, and local culture . Of the 15 medieval churches that served Visby, as ruins they exist as venues of various cultural events, the existing cathedral and more than 150 medieval buildings all make up the townscape. Outside of Visby awaits characteristic nature and memorable experiences. Why not head for the small Island Faro with the stonepillars(rauk) at Langhammars.
