For the little ones
Gotland has won many awards in recent years, mainly because it’s such a great place for holidays with children. It’s particularly attractive for families with very young children. You’re never far from a safe beach, and there’s an enormous range of activities for both children and parents.
And, talking of Pippi, why not follow in her footsteps? What exactly is a spunk? And can you really walk on a wobbly line? Go on the Pippi Trail and join her fun adventures! The walk starts at the Tourist Information Office on Gotland in July.
How about spending the day as a princess? Or as one of the Knights of Botulf? At Kapitelhusgården you can go to the Knights’ and Princesses’ School and try sewing in leather, making coins or learning to be a blacksmith – just like in the Middle Ages.
A slightly more peaceful activity is to chuff around on the small trains in Visby. Go on a guided tour with the family. The trains run from the harbour or from Östercentrum several times a day in the summer.
Lummelundagrottan is a cave, and is one Gotland’s most popular attractions. The large cave can be a bit spooky, so young children have their own cave to visit, Knattegrottan. Borrow a helmet and torch and explore the cave yourself and see its exciting fossils and small creatures.
