Visby Things to Do: 84 reviews and 191 photos


The eastern gate was the main road into the Gotland countryside in medieval days and the route taken by farmers wanting to sell their produce. Today it is the road leading to the shops of Östervägen and then further on to the village of Roma. It is a place where you will almost certainly find yourself at one stage or other since you will be exploring Hästgatan or perhaps look for the bus station nearby. Remember that Visby was once a city excluding its countryside and therefore there was once a portcullis here but only a wooden bar remains if you raise your head inside it today.
