Situated between the sea and the old town Visby Botanical garden is a must see. Here you will find a variety of beautiful flowers, trees and plants. It is above all a very quiet place where you can sit and relax. It is for free.

Part of original Visby. Here you can just wander around away from tourists. And the plants are wonderful too.
