Take your swedish fika to new heights

Before you step inside, take a look at the beautiful building next to Rådhusesplanaden. This is one of Gävle's palaces from the 1890s, aptly named the Gevalia Palace. Perhaps you'll have a sourdough bun, the homemade gelato, or something entirely different with your delicious coffee.

Breathtaking view towards the horizon

Walk out onto the open cliffs and slopes 20 meters above the sea, enjoy the unique environment, and magnificent views at the site between the old fishing villages Bönan and Utvalnäs. Gråberget being a military protected area until 1997 has strongly contributed to the area maintaining high natural values and not being developed.
