Welcome to GÄVLE

by Leipzig

Gävle has a population of about 90,000 people and is Sweden's 15th largest city. It is located on the Baltic Sea coast. The university town has a great cultural and outdoor life. Gävle received its city charter by King Kristoffer of Bayern in 1446 and is therefore the oldest town in Norrland.

On the trip around the Baltic Sea we arrived Gävle on the 22nd day early in the morning. It was one of the rare sunny days. After a short sightseeingtour we had a breakfast in a cozy café. We were quite surprised that we were almost the only people in town. Perhaps the locals were all at work.

Gävle – small town in big costume

by Maline

"Don't just pass it through"

In the pic: County council building, right in the middle of town.

G?vle is Swedens 15th largest town. I bet that means nothing to you. But it means that In G?vle town live 65 000 people, and in the county, some 90 000 people.

To find G?vle, look along the east coast of Sweden, north of Stockholm. If you find Hudiksvall, you are too far north.

Those who have travelled north by train in Sweden are almost certain to have passed through G?vle Central Station, which brags some 10 000 visitors each day (not sure if they count those who remain aboard the trains. ) But I doubt if too many of these passers-through have actually made it into G?vle town.

It is actually worth it. Stepping down from the train, the fresh sea-breeze of G?vle is a welcome change from the stale train air. When walking in G?vle, even downtown, you can feel in the air that this is a coastal town. Even though it is only the 15th largest town in Sweden ( and I can tell ya', that ain't much), G?vle town feels much larger. There is a city center, with malls, a grand pedestrian shopping street, fountains and trees and all. But cross the river and walk into south G?vle, and there are more shopping streets and a whole new cute center...
The river ? yes ? it is called Gavle?n and runs right through the town dividing it into a north and a south part. Along the riverbed the rims have been fortified with stones, and there is a number of bridges, big and small that go across it.
Facing the river are a number of important buildings including the City Library, the County Museum and the Town Castle.

If (for some reason) you want to visit the official G?vle county homepage, you can do that on www.gavle.se

"Old Gefle"

The old part of town is totally small (in area size and in house size) and manageable. You can stroll through the whole thing in 15 minutes. But those are some cute 15 minutes. Especially recommended in summer. You will be one in a crowd of tourists...

"Night scene"

The centre of town is a lively affair dureing friday and saturday evenings, and to some extent on wednesdays which are know as "little saturdays" in Sweden.
In summer the downtown part of Gävle on these nights hosts a friendly warm atmosphere and you can have a beer at an outdoor café listening to some musician performing. In colder seasons people are more in a hurry to get into whatever night spot they have chosen, but the streets are still a lively scene.
