A cruise-pier is a prerequisite for the large cruise ships to be able to call into Visby Harbour.
The new pier will be located south of Visby harbour.
Two ships of 340 meters LOA will able to dock at the same time. The actual pier is 150 meters long and is reached via a 140 meter long bridge from a broader land policy, with space for parking of buses, taxis, bicycles and tourist train. A cruise-ship terminal with convenience facilities for passengers and crew are also placed here.
The total length of the new quay, including abutment, will be 530 meters.
Ships under 140 meters will continue to be offered a place in the inner harbor.
