Biking in the Town of Roses and Ruins
Explore Visby, known as the Town of Roses and Ruins by bicycle. From the harbor, the first part of the cycle route will take you to Almedalen, once the site of the Hanseatic Harbor. See "Kruttornet" the powder tower, the oldest remaining structure in Visby dating from the early 1,100's. Continue along Strandgatan to the lovely Botanical Gardens. In the gardens, because of the mild winters, there are specimens of almond trees, magnolias and acacias, besides vivid displays of flowers. Pass Maiden´s Tower and uphill to Klinten, a good viewpoint over the ruins of the old city, harbor and the Baltic Sea. The route continues on a bicycle path south into the countryside and the next stop will be the high cliff of Hoegklint, about 3 miles south of Visby. There is a wide view to the north-east towards Visby while to the south the cliff continues. Refreshments of tea/coffee and local cakes will be served at Princess Eugenies Summer Residence in Fridhem before returning by peddle-power back to Visby and the harbor.
