Sweden's Prison Museum

Let yourself be touched and moved by the different parts of Sweden's Prison Museum. The castle prison and the cell prison have a lot to tell. It's nice to hold someone's hand when things can get a little scary.

Cozy and suitably scary on Saturday

After a good hotel breakfast, you are ready to take on Saturday's hardships, whether with or without a disguise. Read below for our tips for things to do on autumn holiday Saturday in Gävle.

Forsbacka Bruk, one of Gävle's old ironworks, turns into a Halloween costume during the month of October and hosts Haunted Halloween, one of Sweden's scariest horror walks. Less scary in daylight? Perhaps. During the day, it is possible to book the same experience for those who don't really dare to let themselves be frightened after the encroachment of darkness. The beautiful surroundings around the mill with its historic wings suit the whole family.
