Start and end your visit to Stockholm at Södermalm. You have everything here. Södermalm is actually an island. So why not take a walk around, it will take a few hours but there is a lot to experience.

Where the atmosphere is as far as people meets are concerned. Pubs, restaurants, clubs, music, views, cozy hotels, etc. You could call it SoOt (South Of Old Town). Try it.

Sodermalm used to be the worker's part of town with lots of simple dwellings, mostly wooden structures. Some of these can still be found in isolated areas and they are lovely to visit. Today you will find lots of people in their 30-40's living here, many with good incomes. There are quite a lot of children which can be seen in all the cafes where they are taken by their mothers in prams. Sodermalm is a dramatic part of Stockholm with sharp cliffs towards the water to the north. Views are great here. There are lots of lovely walks. Shopping is usually on a smaller scale with lots of small shops especially along Hornsgatan and Gotgatan. Sodermalm (or Söder as it's often called, meaning South) has the greatest concentration of restaurants and pubs in Sweden in the area around Medborgarplatsen. This is my part of town.

South of Folkungagatan is a nice area full of great little boutiques, cafes and restaurants. Götgatan is trendy but crowded, still always worth the visit. Kungsgatan used to be nice, nowadays it's definitely Götgatan.

If you like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Stieg Larson, then I would suggest you visit this trendy, gritty, über cool area of Stockholm. Frommer's Day by Day has a great walking tour of the area. Give yourself at least 4 hours to do it.
