On your next trip to Visby make sure to consider our Visby car hire services for your personal transportation needs. Visby is very special town both in Sweden as well as the whole of Scandinavia being known for its medieval architectural features, so much so that it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.
This is one of the best parts of the country to visit during the summer, namely between mid June and mid August since the entire place turns into a major party city with a lot of its inhabitants choosing to move away during these months and rent their apartments.
You can get into Visby either by boat or by airplane and you can have our Visby car rental services have a car ready for you at the airport as soon as you land. On the other hand if you’ve already rented a car from any of our other Sweden offices you can take it on the boat with you and drop it off in Visby if that is your wish.
The town’s protective wall is still standing from the Middle Ages alongside about two hundred other buildings from the same time period. Visby is sometimes called the city of roses and ruins and due to its Medieval heritage the town hosts an annual festival called Medieval Week. This is a week in August when the locals dress up in Medieval costumes and bring back the Medieval atmosphere to the old city walls with music, jesters, jousting tournaments and a medieval market.
While you can’t actually drive within the city walls, since the town is very much preserved from medieval times, you can park outside the walls without a lot of problems and u can use your rental car to explore the other gems that surround the city such as the Botanical Garden, the Hahhska huse or the Saint Maria Cathedral.
These are of course only a couple of the attractions that the town has to offer and if you want to explore its surrounding better you can definitely do that with the help of our Visby car hire services.
