SodermalmStockholm

Stockholm's hottest district Sodermalm is a melting pot of beautiful architecture, trendy bars, exciting cultural happenings and unique shopping, completely surrounded by water.

Sodermalm is one of the central districts in Stockholm, and it is truly teeming with life. In the many beautiful period buildings you find restaurants, shops and bars that are popular destinations for people from all over the city. Book a holiday in Sodermalm to experience the unique charms of this part of town.

The first area to be built on in Sodermalm was Slussen which still remains a central hub of the district. Here you find several well preserved buildings along cobbled streets, and you can take a stroll along Gotgatan with its many shops and bars. During a weekend in Sodermalm you will discover a varied shopping scene with everything from the latest boutique Nordic design creations to big brands and well stocked vintage and antique shops.

Stroll along Hornsgatspuckeln and pop in to the many little galleries along the way. Experience the pulsating night life and have a drink at a trendy bar by Mariatorget, Medborgarplatsen or Nytorget. Visit the museums in this part of town, like the Stadsmuseet or Fotografiska. Go swimming at the sandy beaches in Hornstull or at Langholmen if the weather allows.

Sodermalm is surrounded by water and there are many fine views around. Enjoy the panoramic vista from Monteliusvagan close to Mariatorget, or from Katarinavagen, which goes up the hill from Slussen. Enjoy the view over Riddarfjarden and the historic centre of Stockholm. Cross Vasterbron for another marvellous view of Sodermalms northern shores.

It is not hard to get around in Sodermalm, and most of the highlights are within easy walking distance. Use local buses and metro to get to and from the district from other parts of Stockholm. You can pay per trip or get a season ticket of either one or three days. This can be the perfect option for those who want to spend a weekend in Sodermalm. The metro stop Slussen is only two stops from Stockholm Central Station, so easily reached once in the centre of the city.

In Sodermalm old and young people meet in a district blending history and the latest trends. Visit any time of year, as the seasons really change the face of Sodermalm. Walk along the historic streets, have a coffee at a sunny café terrace or admire the 18th century houses in their winter garb.
