It is difficult to tell some parts of beautiful Stockholm apart after just a few visits but all the areas along the water are very enjoyable. Sodermalm is no exception. Hang out a bit in this area too.

Originally a slum area, this area is now known for its bohemian, or artsy, cultures, and a large range of cultural amenities. There are some great places to eat, but the draw for us was the views out over the rest of Stockholm from the area.

This part of the city is the "hip" one where people are artsy and you can see creativity written all over it. The coffe places are not your usual style but worth the experience. I love the feeling there!

This part of town has some funky coffee bars, shops, restaurants, and an 'almost' pedestrian street running down the east side. But it's not quite there yet and in a few years when it gets more established it will be the go to spot after the old town

This is were the young creative and professional people live. Many small good local cafes and restaurants and Montelius Vagen offers the best view over Stockholm

Full of bars and very relaxed area as opposite to the very posh Nordmalm and Ostermalm. Lots of design shops and people on the streets.

Söder has a lot of good food places and shops but it is trying to be so hip and trendy that it becomes pretentious and lacks soul.

We rented a flat on a trendy square high up on the island. The annual midnight run took place on the Saturday and was rather good fun. It is easy to register yourself for a City Bike by visiting one of the 7 to 11 food stores and the City is very biker friendly with lanes all over the place.... More

Really lovely area to walk around, there is an abundance of alluring cafe's and restaurants serving up some truly delicious food! (I had a great meal experience at Oxelblom). It generally feels leafy, laid-back and trendy. Couldn't have picked a better location to stay: Hotel Rival in the enchanting Mariatorget square.
