Clarion Hotel Wisby
The hotel is located near the small boat harbour in the oldest part of Visby - a piece of living history. The town is one of the best preserved medieval Hanseatic cities and a UNESCO world heritage site. In Visby everything is within easy reach. Visby Airport, the Ferry Terminal and Wisby Strand - Gotland's event facility and conference hall, can be reached in less than 15 minutes.
The various buildings of Clarion Hotel Wisby each have their own history and over the ages have been used for different purposes. They were built during the middle ages as warehouses - buildings in which merchants stored and exhibited their wares. At the end of the 17th century they were used as bonded stores, i.e. buildings in which the government stored the grain that the farmers paid in tax. In the same period there was also a taven called Stadshuskällaren Friheten. The name lives on in the hotels nearest neighbour and partner - Friheten Restaurant.
A host of features of the building still bear witness to its history, which goes right back to mediaeval times. These include rooms with cross-vaulting and columns that are over 700 years old.
There has been a hotel on our premises since the mid-19th century. Today's Clarion Hotel Wisby opened 1st of May 1991 and is a totally up-to-date- hotel with a history and a completely unique atmosphere.
