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.
Come and see Gävle’s biggest celebrity in December! The thirteen metre high Gävle Goat adorns Slottstorget in Gävle every year from the first advent.
"We're in the land of Christmas." John, Aileen, Mary-Anne and Tim belong to the big fan base who follows the Gävle goat via webcam every year. Last year, they all traveled from the US to Gävle, Sweden, to celebrate Christmas and to see the Gävle goat in real life.
Christmas begins with the Gävle Goat. Find out more and plan your stay in Gävle!
