Gotland, SWEDEN

Sep 2013

Karin has pastel blue eyes, golden blond hair, rosy cheeks and a cheerful personality. She teaches social sciences at high school and in the last three years she’s been looking after her hotel, the Stelor. It’s a fairy-tale hotel with a superb restaurant south of Visby on the island of Gotland.



The perfect breakfast

A place close to the sea with American blueberry pancakes, a big jug of Swedish coffee and freshly squeezed orange juice. In Visby there is no such a place unfortunately, the closest you can get is to buy a picnic basket from the little coffee shop in the city library and take a 2 min stroll down to the ocean. And while you are at the library why not pick-up a good book to keep you company. 

Your favourite home delivery 

I like a good Indian restaurant for a take out any day of the week.

Your best-kept secret place

I consider the garden at my little Hotel Stelor my best kept secret place. If you cross over the fence where the lambs are and make your way trough the high grass you will come to the most beautiful little stream. The sounds from the tall trees and the water really make this place magic and tranquil.  

The Sunday lunch

Bakfickan in Visby, the smallest but truly excellent fish and shellfish restaurant. It has a great ambience and a great service

Your Anniversary restaurant

Krakas Krog in Kräklingbo has the best kitchen on Gotland. They will never disapoint you in any way.

The dinner with friends

Surfers in Visby. Sechuan kitchen at its best.

If you lost your keys, in which hotel would you spend a night?

In the old lighthouse on the island of Stora Karlsö, it functions now as a hostel. I would say one of the world’s best-placed hostels, where I gladly would spend the night.
