Monthly Climate Averages for Sundsvall Sweden

 

Sightseeing:

On the one hand you have Sundsvall, a beautiful town with a rich and clearly vibrant range of culture and entertainment, on the other there is the magnificent natural beauty that is such a key feature of the town. The town center is one of the most beautiful in the country, with long boulevards and richly decorated buildings in neo-Renaissance style, built as the town rose from the ashes of a devastating fire in 1888 that made 9,000 people homeless. Today, future architects and town planners regularly visit Sundsvall to study the listed town center.

Shopping and Food

Serious shoppers may find their biggest problem is deciding what to buy. The epithet "Norrland's shopping Mecca" is well deserved. With just over 200 stores-from exclusive, personal boutiques to all the major chains, department stores and a handful of galleries-Sundsvall definitely takes its shopping seriously. The choice is vast, perhaps with a slight emphasis on fashion and interiors.

Currency:

The national currency is the Swedish krona (SEK, plural kronor). 1 USD is about 5.91 SEK, 1 EUR is about 9.43 SEK and 1 GBP is about 12.28 SEK.

Automatic teller machines take major credit cards. Most stores, restaurants and bars accept all major credit cards, although in some cases there is a SEK 5 fee or a lowest purchase limit (between 50 - 100 SEK).

Communication:

112 is the phone number to dial in case of fire, medical or criminal emergency.

Opening Hours and Holidays:

Most shops, at least downtown, are open all week, even on Sundays.
