When to go
time to visit Sundsvall is definitely in July
when the town is very lively and most people have
their holidays. Sundsvall people living in "exile"
in for example Stockholm usually return to their
home soil making the clubbing scene extra busy.
"People are crazy up there"
A friend from Switzerland on visit in Sundsvall
was more or less shocked by the fact that people
seem to spend all their time outdoors in summer
thanks to the endless bright summer nights (Quote:
"People are crazy up there").
The editor´s ideal day may be spent
Zip a coffee at the Charm outdoor cafe on Storgatan,
then travel by motorbike to the popular and scenic
Tranviken beach on Alnö island.
In the afternoon/evening return to the centre
and visit a GIF Sundsvall football game and/or
some of the following outdoor cafés or
pubs: O´learys, Bishop´s arms, O´bar,
Svenssons, Coffee House and Wayne´s Coffee.
