Gävle Central Station stands a short drive from the city centre on the north side of the Gavleån river. The 19th-century station is impressive for a city the size of Gävle, although it has become something of a rail hub – the regular fast trains mean that Stockholm is only an hour and 20 mins away. The station faces the Central Plan Square; if you pick up a hire car from Gävle station it's easy to drive into the centre and for journeys further afield, Gävle is a useful link for road transport too. The E4, R67, R68, R76 and R80 all converge on this Norrland city.
If you pick up a hire car at Gävle Station you'll find that the visitor highlights of this busy provincial city include the historic web of narrow streets of colourful wooden houses in the old town. The Central Station may be a landmark but there's also an acclaimed Railway Museum here too. There are also rather quirky museums associated with American labour organizer Joe Hill and covering the history of prisons. A short drive out of the city you'll find the family-friendly Furuvik Park, which offers another odd mix: a small children's arcade, zoo and relics of wartime coastal defences.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
