Use green means of transportation to the Gavle Goat Inauguration!
The Gavle Goat Inauguration on the first of advent is one of Gävle's largest events, and each year, tens of thousands of goat fans are gathered on Castle Square in order to see our grand goat inaugurated. But what is the best possible way to get to Castle Square?
In 2017, the Goat Committee and Gävle Municipality are cooperating with the organisation Keep Sweden Tidy in order to make the Goat Inauguration an eco-friendly event. One way to help out is by using a green alternative when travelling to the inauguration ceremony. Walking and biking are possible options for those who live nearby - that is, if the Swedish December weather allows it - but the famous goat has visitors from all over the world. Hence, buses and trains will be excellent means of transportation. Or why not join a carpool group? https://www.facebook.com/skjutsgruppen/
SJ operates trains to stations all over Sweden, including Gävle's central station (Gävle C). From there, Castle Square is only a few minutes away!
X-trafik runs buses and trains all over the county of Gävleborg. Their webpage is very helpful if you want to find information about what buses depart from your hotel, for instance. Put Slottstorget as your final destination!
