Worth every moment!
Just take a walk in the forest or in Gävle's beautiful city park, the Boulogner Park. Visit one of our recreation areas or go shopping in one of the shopping malls of Gävle City, Valbo or Hemlingby. In the summertime you can play golf at one of Sweden's largest golf courses or leave town to spend some time at sea. Visit the theatre and a museum, watch a dance performance or go to see a work of art you have perhaps never seen before. Visit one of our relaxing cafes and enjoy a cup of coffee or a picnic in the fantastic parks and gardens.
