We went to Stockholm for Eurovision and stayed in this neighbourhood as it was walking distance to the arena. Great spot, with lots of excellent bars (even if your beer is super pricy, Sweden), cafes, cute shops and lovely streets. Very accessible to all parts of the city.

Being a big fan of the Millennium books I've known about Södermalm for a long time and was excited to visit. We spent a lot of time here, did the Millennium book tour and ate in a couple of great restaurants, visited cool shops. It's just a really great place to wander around and is very cool and chilled. I... More

Sodermalm's is a fine restaurant and its a bar. I like the decor its more Danish than German and it feels good, and warm. I was here for a nightcap, and not hot chocolate. I ordered aquavit, (an herb infused spirit) first distilled here in the 15th century.

We stayed in Gamla Stan and walked over the bridge to Sodermalm and to the right of the main high street. Nice quirky old streets and buildings and great views at height over the water and all of Stockholm.... recommended.

Yes, you came to hipster paradise. Soder is for real. Its authentic. Of course there are not only hipsters here, but they have surely added to the value of Soder. With cool shopping areas, great restaurants, happening bars. Stortorget is one area, another is Mariatorget and also of course Hornstull.

Sodermalm is finding a new identity and is developing into one of the cooler areas of Stockholm, but as a tourist there are other areas you might visit first.

I love this area of Stockholm. Full of culture, hippy bars, funcky cafes and shops.Loads of places to eat from burger bars to organic cafe places. More retro than the rest of Stockholm. Farmers markets and all sorts sold here

Sodermalm is the birthplace of many Stockholm favorites. Coming here takes you back to the roots of many of the most innovative businesses and restaurants of Stockholms central districts. Take a food tour to experience Sodermalm

We quickly discovered that Sodermalm, particularly Hornsgatan street was the place for affordable restaurants with lots of variety. We came to the area every night we were in town to try a different restaurant and also have a nice walk afterward. very safe area.

Staying in Slussen

Neighbourhood Profile
Slussen
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.
