“A fantastic island in central Stockholm”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

Langholmen is a green island in the southern part of central Stockholm-SÖDERMALM. It takes about one hour to walk around the shores of the Island. You will see hares, rabbits, deers and birds.The birds will give a consert worth listening to among others you can hear nightingales.
There are two beaches where you can go swimming in clean water. Also visit the prison
museum. There is a hotel and hostel with moderate prices and a restaurant.

“Långholmen”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

Lovely island to walk around. Some winters you can cross on the ice to Reimersholme. In the summer there are beaches, both sand and cliff. On part of the island there are allotments with berry bushes, flowers, herbs and fruit trees. Nice to walk around from early spring to late autumm.
There used to be a prison on the island. Today you can stay in the prison as it has been converted into a hostel and a hotel. Nice experience to sleep in one of the cells!!

“Small island but very nice!”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The island is situated at the west end of Södermalm island and close to Reimersholme. You can easy access from for example Hornstull (both subway and bus), it is just a little walk.

The island is quite small but there are a lot of things like a sand beach, rent kayak, restaurants, and a hostel. You can also easy swim from the rocks or just take a walk or run around the island.

Remember that it is small paths only around no big roads...

“Local, quiet scenic walk”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

Take a walk with great water views and see the local boat scene. Nice place to go and take a lunch and sit by the water without the smoking crowds that sit outside all of the places to eat. quiet walking area. Great when the weather is nice.
