Social Program
Thursday August 22
The social program includes on Thursday August 22 an optional 3 course dinner at Munkkällaren which is a solid restaurant and pub which opened back in 1965. A wide and exciting menu is offered here, well prepared Swedish food with foreign inspirations. Munkkällaren is centrally located in Visby city centre. Here you enjoy high-class food in generous portions, high service with a unique meeting point in a genuine historical environment with cross vaults from the 12th century.

Friday August 23
On Friday August 23 a personal guide will take you on an entertaining two-hour tour of the world heritage of Visby in small groups. The tour will give you the city's exciting history where truths and legends from Visby's 1,000-year history are mixed. We wander through centuries in the walled city and get to know the streets and squares, alleys and people.
The tour will end in a local Pub where we will toast to world heritage. After the tour and toast a one course dinner will be served at a local restaurant nearby.

Saturday August 24
On Saturday August 24 the gala dinner – “Dinner in a Gotland barn” will take place. A bus
transfer will take you around 20 km south of Visby to a genuine Gotland barn. The bus transfer will
make a small round trip of the area and nature around Visby. At the barn the gala dinner will be
served in the beautifully decorated venue in a Gotland theme. Around 22.30-23.00 the buses will
bring you back to Visby again.

The social program will be offered at cost rate and are optional, but we highly recommend each of the events. Gala dinner, the guided tour and toast to the heritage including a one course dinner is included in the registration.
