I loved this neighbourhood; it seems to have a little bit of everything: nice and leafy squares, cosy wooden buildings, pleasant parks, great views and nightlife. I recommend going for a walk in the eastern part of the neighbourhood, starting at Nytorget.

Nice area, lot of restaurants, bars and places full of locals (which is a good point to me). Nice food court.

Sodermalm is a more up and coming area of Stockholm than the centre city. It has great coffee shops, restaurants and is good just to walk around. The main street is a pedestrian mall with goo shopping though the more interesting places are on the streets away from the mall.

It has many bar / pubs along the street. It has great canal views. Best to be at night to check sitting outside with heater turned on and few pints of beers/ few glasses of wine.

The 'hipster' district with lots of views over Old Town but shops, cafes, restaurants everywhere. Definitely spend a few hours exploring and walking the streets and different areas to absorb touristic and local culture/spots!

Great place. Shops everywhere and cafes everywhere. I find it to be a very busy area, with a lot of people walking around, but also very safe from what i saw. However, we are staying in skanstull so we are close to sodermalm and come through it everyday.

Usually described as the hipster district of Stockholm, good place for eating out and grabbing a beer in the evening, there are even some places with very acceptable prices. Also two good viewpoints towards the Old Town. My favourite part is around Mariatorget, especially North of it. Arriving by underground, get off at Mariatorget or Medborgarplatsen instead of Slussen for... More

We stayed in Sodermalm for a week during our stay in Stockholm, near the Slussen station. Everyday, apart from travelling out to visit other areas in Stockholm, we spent most of the time walking around the north of Sodermalm, exploring, shopping and eating.

While less romantic than the gamla stan (Old Town) yet only a few minutes walk from there, Södermalm is an active place with lots of young folks around. Good restaurants and pubs.

We enjoyed our visits to Sodermalm, the hip, trendy south district/island that is filled with creative restaurants and cafes, unique shops & vintage stores & galleries. Fjällgatan and Monteliusvägen viewpoints are located on Sodermalm and offer some of the best views overlooking the beautiful city of Stockholm.

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.
