Medieval Week at Gotland
Medeltidsveckan på Gotland
Visby (Gotland county)
Gotland, Sweden’s largest island, lies right in the middle of the Baltic. The island’s biggest city, Visby, boasts one of the best preserved medieval ramparts anywhere in the world and is included in UNESCO’s world heritage list since 1995.
During eight days in August the Middle Age is back on Gotland. Visby’s 200 medieval houses on winding lanes, splendid church ruins, and the magnificent city walls frame a unique spectacle – the medieval Week on Gotland. Celebrated for over 25 years, the festival engages tens of thousands local visitors and travellers, representing the largest and most famous event on Gotland.
The Medieval Week offers events and activities involving the visitors of all ages: markets and music, theatre and lectures, knight tournaments, exciting spectacle and shows. Smells, colours, sounds, tastes and movements of the past fill the atmosphere. Local professionals and merry amateurs recreate the tales of medieval Gotland in plays, jesting, parades and improvisations on streets and squares.
