OK, Thanks Jens and Thomas, I will use JSNI then.

In javascript it is possible to decide whether we want to add a listener the bubbling way or the capturing way. Is this also possible with GWT? I have probably overlooked something but I couldn't find anything related in the docs.

It doesn't exist because historically Internet Explorer didn't support it.

You could possibly use EventPreview, but it still works in the bubbling phase, it's just triggered before the event is dispatched to a GWT widget.

If you really need to work in the capture phase, you have no other choice, for now, than to use Elemental or JSNI.
