The area is filled with great restaurants, cafes, boutique shops, and vintage clothing stores. It feels a bit like an upscale Berkeley, CA or a more artistic Angel, London. Architecturally, it's a bit meh, but there are great views along the northern cliffs and it's very easy to get to old town.

Love the walking tour (FreeTourStockholm); not as enchanted with the environs. The views were wonderful, and the neighborhoods were very different from the Old City (of course!) - good to see another part of Stockholm and walking was clearly the way to see it - but glad we weren't staying there.

There are many independent shops, bars and restaurants and some unusual buildings. Our guide book had a good 30 minute walk to get to know the area. The area links to the tube and also on the slower train to Arlanda Stockholm airport. Easy to walk to Slussen for the ferries to the islands.

Enjoyed the area and the shops. I would recommend to spend time here and just relax and explore. Lots to see and a little less touristy than Gamla stan.

I experienced Söder on a Free Walking Tour, with was very informative and nice. It is a hip neighbourhood with lots of nice cafes, skater shops, bars and parks.

This is the most vibrant living part of Stockholm. You can see the lively daily live and have a beer or coffee between the students yourself. There are a lot of events happening which makes it something you should definitely visit.

Walk around and get a feeling of Stockholm, there are plenty of restaurants, bars and shops. I just wish they wouldn't allow cars on those streets.

Södermalm is a good place to base yourself for a sightseeing trip as Slussen has a T, several bus routes and the ferry to Djugarden (where many attractions are located). It also houses the joint transport and toy museums and the photography museum (open until 11 with a café with great views). Södermalm has plenty of cafés with reasonable prices... More
