Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Great park for a walk with lots to do.
    We walked through the park along the side of the river. There were plenty of benches a great cafe with inside and outside seating and two mini golf courses.
    Washrooms were clean too

    Beautiful village at the coast. We took the bus from Gavle which ran every hour.
    Great walking paths and lovely views out to sea.
    There is a small cafe and a short walk to a lovely historic lighthouse.

    Interesting museum in the centre of Gävle. Gave a good view of how hard prison life was in earlier days.

    Excited to get a insight to Swedish railway history compared to the Norwegian one since much of Norwegian equipment came from Sweden.

    Maybe I thought the museum was more about regional history, now I love art so no damage has been done?

    Of course, parts of the history of the forest-rich landscape are presented. Missed perhaps a little more about the rich industrial history of the countryside. Fine collections of donated fabric and Swedish art. Pedagogical presented in different eras and styles. Nothing to lose, the visit is free, use the money in the shop or drink coffee on site.

    Great location by the river, Located almost in the centre of Gavle so great place to visit if you are in the area. Close to the City Park too.

    A beautiful island in the inner part of the archipelago of Gavle. The ferry departs from Sodra Skeppsbron in central Gavle several times each day and it takes about 40 min to reach Limon. There is a small cafe close to the berth, which is also where the path that goes across the island begins. Limon is about 2x4 km and is well worth a days trip.

    The Holy Trinity Church is centrally located near Gävle River.

    The church was built in 1654 after a medieval church was burnt down. The bell tower wasn't completed until the late 18th century. Because of the difficult ground conditions, the tower leans several degrees.

    This church has a more striking interior than it looks from outside.

    Totrabadet is shallow and very child friendly. When sunny weather, a small kiosk offers ice cream, coffee, soft drinks and crisps, at 12 noon to 5 pm from end of June until beginning of August. Welcome!
