Södermalm is a fantastic place to experience, surrounded by water. If you enjoy running follow the sea shore and you get 10k going one lap. Places not to miss, Montelius terrass giving a great view over Old Town and city hall. Stretching from Slussen towards...More

Sodermalm has a ton of character, and plenty of great restaurants to choose from in varying price ranges. It's very walkable, and convenient to the Old Town and public transport all over the city. Definitely recommended for an evening out.

This area has many restaurants and bars. It seems to attract a very young, fun crowd! We enjoyed our time here and made our way to Meatballs for the People restaurant for a typical Swedish dinner and then followed that with a trip to Montelius...More

This is where a lot of the trendy kids hang out. Lots of cool little bars and restaurants. A great little area to explore. There are some great parks and the Fotografiska museum if you are into photography.

haha! This is what our hotel told us. It was quite cute and fun to hang out in for the evenings, but a bit less of a scene than Brooklyn, NY. Check out Fotografiska and Moseback while you're out there. Great neighborhood to explore.

Most of the reason why I saw this area was because the Hilton Stockholm is there, and that's where we stayed. I really enjoyed this island. There aren't as many touristy things to do here, but the restaurants are excellent, and I think you see...More

There is a lot going on in this area, vintage shops, restaurants, views, quaint back streets to explore. Some of it is a bit run down and some looks gentrified. Worth a look. Not what I expected having read the Millennium Trilogy which references this...More

Well... Pubs in Sthlm - and especially Södermalm - are everywhere. Locals can't get enough of cliché type British Pubs (and I love a good pint or two myself) but this is realle Pub Concept 1A. It's a bit of a dive bar that ticks...More

This busy, rustic pub was the first place that opened my eyes to the prospect of drinking beer in courses as you would with wine. From pale ales to sour stouts, this pub has got beers down to a T. Being British, however, it was...More

It’s been 15 years since it was in Sodermalm and wow what a difference. Gentrified, artsy, and lots of restaurants and stores. The best views of Gamla Stan are from the embankments.

Slussen
A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision
and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has
become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy
and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the
area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so
far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason
for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance.
Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping
