It's nice to have a walk by the old part of Gävle and see these beautiful old wooden houses. It seems most (or all?) of them cannot make any changes both on the outside and inside so they can keep their original charm.

The place is quite pittoresque but very very far from lively and it's small. You can fine tons of place like this, but far better, in many places in Scandics.

Great place to stroll around and look at all the old houses that survived the big fire. Great cafe during summertime and some museums.

An old and small part of town with small wooden buildings on narrow cobbled streets. If you can spend much more than ten minutes here you must have done one street twice.

This small area in Gävle with old treehouses and narrow alleys makes for a nice walk, small stores and cafės.

Beautiful traditional architecture, well maintained buildings. It's not very large, but in the middle of a day in July we were the only people strolling the streets there, apart from a postman.

Nice old town of Gävle, definitely worth visiting when in town. Situated immediately close to the centre of town and close to the river.
