Most of the reason why I saw this area was because the Hilton Stockholm is there, and that's where we stayed. I really enjoyed this island. There aren't as many touristy things to do here, but the restaurants are excellent, and I think you see...More

There is a lot going on in this area, vintage shops, restaurants, views, quaint back streets to explore. Some of it is a bit run down and some looks gentrified. Worth a look. Not what I expected having read the Millennium Trilogy which references this...More

Well... Pubs in Sthlm - and especially Södermalm - are everywhere. Locals can't get enough of cliché type British Pubs (and I love a good pint or two myself) but this is realle Pub Concept 1A. It's a bit of a dive bar that ticks...More

This busy, rustic pub was the first place that opened my eyes to the prospect of drinking beer in courses as you would with wine. From pale ales to sour stouts, this pub has got beers down to a T. Being British, however, it was...More

It’s been 15 years since it was in Sodermalm and wow what a difference. Gentrified, artsy, and lots of restaurants and stores. The best views of Gamla Stan are from the embankments.

Overrated, filled with snobby thinking they are the center of uniberse. Stay away if you can. If not, make it quick.

I’ve heard this is a beautiful area and wish I had more time to explore. It seemed a bit industrial on my walk to Fotografiska, but there are great views back to the city! Excellent coffee and dining options, too

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
