Visit Gävle City and see the Gävle Goat during the Christmas season, stroll through old Gefle with its cobblestone streets and wooden houses, or experience the authentic industrial environment in Forsbacka and Mackmyra.

Visit one of the many exhibitions, learn more about how history unfolds here and now.

Gävle Concert Hall was inaugurated in 1998 and was designed by architect Bo Karlberg. The concert hall is located where the Strömbadet bathhouse used to be, and before that, Rettig's orphanage. The building is situated by the rapids of Gavleån, and its facade is clad in glossy deep-blue tiles. Two large bay windows face Gavleån and the City Garden, where Carl Milles' "Five Musician Geniuses," also known as "Milles Angels," play tirelessly in the background.

In 1878, Gävle Theater was completed, inspired by a newly constructed theater in Paris. In accordance with the prevailing architectural ideals of the time, the building took shape based on its function as a theater, with a dome-shaped roof and a distinctive tall structure for the stage. It was built to showcase contemporary performing arts, a tradition that continues today by hosting current performing arts in one of Gävle's most beautiful and historically significant buildings.
