Hudiksvall Things to Do

  • Fiddlers meetings

    During july you can find a fiddlers meeting every weekend within 50 km of Hudiksvall. These meetings is usually at least one day where you can experience folkmusic in every bush! If it is nice wether it is a day worth spending. My favorite is the one in Bjuråker where you also can see how old handikrafts are made and how the old houses were used....

  • Master Palm Statue

    This statue one can find inside the Folketshus and is dedicated to the social democratic politician Palm who had the idea of building the Folketshus and create services to the inhabitants of Hudiksvall.

    This house which means translated Peoples House or Workers House was the original library of the town of Hudiskvall. The original building is the part on the right hand side, the left hand side has been added about 20 years ago still using the identical style of the building when it was originally built a 150 years ago.

    The rysskulan or the Russian Cannon Ball can be seen at the stairs up to the pulpit. It was fired against the Church by the Russian in the night between 22 and 23 May 1721. The original cannon ball was stolen a few years ago, so one can only see a fake one today :-)

  • Jakobs Kyrka Inside

    The church got the main part of its fixtures and decorations through the restaurants of 1888 and 1938. The 1938 restoration was led by Agi Lindgren, the famous architect. Before 1888 the interior was pear-white like "normal" Scandinavian Churches, but the renovations broke a trend creating the warm and colourfull interior.

    Housed in a former bank, the museum displays finds from various archaeological digs in the area. Excavations uncovered an Iron Age burial site and a Malsta runic stone that was inscribed with upright strokes. Local medieval wood carving also is displayed, most of the work by Haaken Gulleson, who was the most distinguished artisan in this form....

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Are you into local craft? Then you can definitely find some in Hudiksvall. At least in summer there are little shops in the od boat-houses along square Möljen in the town centre. Also there is a specialized handicrafts shop in one of the smaller strees to the west of Möljen.

    As for other things, well a small town hasnt got that much shopping. There is a little mall called Guldsmedjan in the main street. Also some small stores with everything from cameras to clothes. Nothing fancy, but you can get the everyday things!

Hudiksvall Warnings and Dangers

    Sweden has a zero tolerance attitude towards breaking traffic rules. My driver was pulled over at 9 am in the morning for alcohol testing and there is police presence all over the country. A speeding fine or any other traffic violations can be quiet expensive!
