36 hours in Visby, Gotland

There is something about the light in this magical place, not too warm, not too bright, romantic in a sense, just right to fall in love at first sight. Visby in Gotland has been on our radar for the past three years before we even got here. Almost every time we meet a local Swede, they would recommend us to experience a midsummer holiday in this classic Swedish destination that not many internationals know yet.

A UNESCO Heritage site that boasts in authentic local restaurants and it also showcases international cuisines with a touch of local flair.
It was almost sunset when we arrived in this picturesque town on the Baltic Sea. We left our luggage at the check-in area and went straight away for Aperitif —Vino and people watching, our usual.

Check-Out Worthy Hot Spots

After a few drinks, we strolled along the cobblestone streets and stumbled upon Supper Visby,  South American hip resto/bar that was recommended by a local friend. Not sure if he made a reservation for us, but we did queue up. Amazingly it all worked out, and next thing we know, our glasses of margaritas and beef tacos are all in order. This place is packed, but social distancing is observed, probably it is a Swede thing, they’re known to be reserved individuals ( but that’s only when they’re sober *wink). The ambiance is lively yet cozy. What great first day of our #Scandinavian summer rendezvous.

Our check-in at a charming hotel The Clarion Hotel Wisby was smooth, and we’re pleased to get upgraded to a room overlooking the harbor. Clarion is decked beautiful preserved medieval interiors such as the columns dating back to 1200s. We love its location because it’s a few steps away from the marina, bars, and restaurants. Can we say that we love the breakfast spread in this hotel? According to them, its typical of a Swedish breakfast.


Close to our hotel is a chic brunch place Vinager, with an inviting garden-Esque entry pathway. Its colorful food and beverage create the best flat lay Instagram pics with its all-white interior.

Swedish eating culture in general, in our experience, is all about dining outdoors with lots of sunshine- to be out in the sea or the garden. And we discovered a classic dinner place that looks like a setting from the Secret Garden movie. Toast Skagen and table for two under the big Walnut Tree, please?

Vardshuset Lindgarden is a must-visit when you are in Visby- especially if you’re celebrating an occasion with special people.

Safe to say we will be back in this magical city. Tack!
