“You should not miss this!”
Reviewed September 9, 2013

If you're just visiting Stockholm briefly or staying here longer, there is something for everyone at Södermalm. This part of Stockholm has more people going places and getting around, than any other part. You can meet anybody and everyone here, as Södermalm is bustling with famous Swedes, wannabees and the rest of us, going into restaurants, pubs, shops and theatres. You might want to to read up before getting here, as everything isn't so easy to find, or you can just go to Medborgarplatsen and mainstream, with everyone else. You can find any kind of food, unique items in stores, whats typically popular in Sweden, and typical Swedish culture, where the old and the new come together in a beautiful bouquet.
Aim to come here summertime as the whole of Stockholm becomes so different in the summer, even the people become more lively and different!
Who know's, you might just run into me, as I live here.
See ya!

“great neighborhood”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

this is where our marvelous hotel was and we loved strolling the streets here. It is a young creative center of Stockholm with lots of second hand shops and art galleries.

“South Stockholm”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Characterized by neighborhood restaurants and shops, this area is quieter than central Stockholm, but still dynamic. It is right for experiencing the mellow side of the city.

“Hip, or just not”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Maybe it's me and maybe it was the day but Södermalm didn't really do it for me. Still nice place but not as cutting edge as I was lead to believe. Maybe I needed a local to show me the right places.
