Departing the pier, head south to visit one of the 92 medieval churches still in use on the island. In a municipality with the highest concentration of churches in Sweden, you are never far away from a church, although the majority of them are situated in the countryside. Their rich history is as visible in the architecture as it is in their decorations.

Next, enjoy a train ride along the old Vintage Railway starting at Roma station. The old carriages will take you through the quiet and peaceful landscape, passing through Tule before arriving at Hesselby/Dalhem Station. On arrival in Dalhem, you’ll find the Gotland Railway Museum which houses an exhibition of the Gotland railways with trolleys, tickets, photos, uniforms and other memorabilia. Call in at the well-known Dalhem Jernvägscafe (Station café) and savour a delicious Gotland saffron pancake along with a hot drink before taking a scenic drive back to Visby.

Explore Visby on a short walking tour amongst roses, ruins and alleys, before returning to your ship. Behind the town wall with its 44 guard towers, this medieval stone city awaits your discovery.
