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 street, Götgatan, attract both locals and tourists with Sweden’s most fashion-forward clothing retailers, hipster coffee shops and restaurants. Once the lights are out, the area turns into a bustling nightlife haven, catering to all preferences, from posh hotel bars to sweaty underground nightclubs. There is no better place to experience the clash between old and new Sweden.
The iconic Katarina Lift is gigantic metal construction that connects Slussen to the heights of Södermalm. The lift was a shortcut between Slussen and Mosebacke Torg.
The original lift was constructed in 1881, but the current structure dates from the rebuilding of the Slussen transport interchange in 1936.
The lift has been closed since 2010 due to security problems in...
This small museum is a gem! It is one of two working silk weaving workshops in the world. The guide was so informative about the history and present of silk weaving. Visiting it, you can really appreciate all the hard work and skill put in by weavers. Unfortunately, the weaver was not there, but we could see her work. Defintely...
La Mano (Spanish for the 'hand') is a memorial to the Swedes who died during the Spanish Civil War.
It is located on Katarinavägen in Södermalm. The monument was created by Liss Eriksson and was completed in 1977.
It is hard to notice because of the beautiful views on the other side.
Woodstockholm is a bit out off the normal tourist path and the locals are happy to keep it to themselves. I'm actually reluctant to share my rave review for fear of starting a stampede to this incredible little neighborhood gem. But we were treated to one of the best and most original meals ever! First you should know it's a...
This place was incredibly busy, which made it hard to get a seat. There's a mix of people drinking and eating in here, so it can be hard to have a seated meal if people are nursing their drinks at a table. At first we had resigned to the fact we'd be stood up eating at the bar, but luckily...

This is a great Swedish restaurant. I went for the meatballs with mash potatoes, lingonberries and pickles. They were all delicious. So was the pint with it. All up it was 244 Kronor.
Service was very friendly. They also had English menus. A great place to sample Swedish cooking!
The initial room was small and located at the side of the building which was rather disappointing but after expressing our views to the front desk staff this was quickly resoved by an upgrade which was great, good view over the city and made our stay memorable
The location was perfect, the hotel is situated in a lovely place very popular, near bars and restaurants and grate shops. The breakfast was amazing. The stuff was really frendly. The room was very small
Very good food in restaurang not so much to choose from at meny but taste and quality was excellent. Room was Nice but a bit noice from some Doors nearby, The location of the hotel is one of the best in Stockholm.
My wife and I were back in Stockholm to celebrate getting engaged there 11 years ago. Having found thee restaurant we ate in before that event had closed we found other offerings very same same and serving a captive market.
We came across the restaurant at Hotel Frantz by chance and had to leave this review to compliment the place...
