Visby Things to Do: 84 reviews and 191 photos


Built for merchant Hans Burmeister from Lübeck in the mid 1600s, this is one of the prettiest houses in Visby. It is built in a typically Swedish style for the time and Burmeister had his shop on the groundfloor whilst residing above where you can now see wallpaintings of animals and events of the time by the old master Johan Bartsch if you manage to see it during opening hours.

Address: Donners Plats / Strandgatan
