Night life!

Sodermalm is where the truly night life of Stockholm live! Lots of pub, restaurants, drink bars, and more of it! Metro station just in front of the square.

My friend and I spent about half a day walking around in Södermalm, which gave us a pretty good impression of this part of the city. We found out that it actually had everything; restaurants, different trendy shops, coffee bars, pubs, parks, churches and some landmarks. However, compared to "City" or "Gamla Stan", Södermalm hasn't got this special atmosphere, and... More

Just a short walk from the Old Town Sodermalm gives you a non-touristy view of Stockholm with excellent views across the city - well worth a visit.

We loved being based here for part of our stay in Stockholm. We found that many of the restaurants, bars, and coffee shops we wanted to visit were here and it was only a short (and beautiful) walk into Gamla Stan. We also enjoyed the views of the rest of the city from Sodermalm as well as the neighborhoody feel... More

Great people watching in the SOFO (south of Folkungagaten) area--we went on a Saturday night and the place was hopping, but I'm sure it's lively/interesting for shopping, eating, drinking most of the day and night.

This area is worth visiting just to get the wonderful view of Gamla Stan from Fjallgatan. It's easy to get to by underground or its a 10 minute walk from the Old Town. On a fine day it's spectacular! One really appreciates the wonderful water view from this suburb. Wander around and enjoy!

Södermalm is a pretty cool place to hang out. It has so many small streets, cafes, clothe stores, just a lot fun and interesting places to see. Like all of stockholm, södermalm is great to just walk around. Watch out for cyclists though!

Even though this is not an attraction itself it is an area of the city which is definitely worth the visit. This is an area to just walk around and get immersed in a more local viewpoint of life in Stockholm. In this area you will find universities, restaurants, shopping and a different view to the city.

Unpretentious working-class area where ordinary people live, work and drink coffee. Bohemian/hipster feel in places, with some great cafés. Imagine yourself in Mikael Blomkvist's world as you walk around. An underrated part of town.
