Visby has one of the best kept original town walls in the whole world. Hike and explore the outside and inside and each of its thirty-six towers.

After you park anywhere in Visby's Old Town, walk towards the botanical gardens on the north along the coast. There you can find where the wall starts. Continue to meander northward along the coast and follow the wall as it takes a turn to the east. Soon it curves south, and then west.As the wall comes to an end, head back north along the coast to find your starting point. The small hike around the city displays beautiful scenery. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a glimpse into the best built, strongest built city wall in all of Scandinavia.
