Welcome to Sundsvall!
The city between the mountains - in the middle of the northern landscape and center for events. Start with a visit to one of the most beautiful cities in the country, with long boulevards and richly decorated buildings in Neo-Renaissance style. Our beautiful stone houses were built as the town rose from the ashes of a devastating fire in 1888.

Hotel Södra Berget, Casino Cosmopol, the City Hall and Tonhallen are just a few venues that always has something exciting to offer. Being close to nature makes Sundsvall unique. We have oceans, rivers, lakes, forests and mountains. Come and unwind. Pick mushrooms and berries, hike, paddle and fish - or get an adrenaline kick by a challenging climb. Cycling, canoeing, horse riding, and trails are available for all skill levels. Take yourself out to the municipalities outskirts. Each area has its own fascinating story to tell!
