According to Vouge, Södermalm is the worlds 3rd coolest neighbourhood! It has lots of trendy shops and lovely cafés and restaurants. There are also many parks where you can have picnic in the summer or just go for a walk. If you ever visit Stockholm you have to visit Södermalm!

Södermalm (the South Island) is the most alive and bubbling place of Stockholm. If you decide to walk around it, you will not be disappointed, stunning views of the City build on 14 islands. The walk is approximately 2,5 hours and about 12 kilometres. You have the views of The Old Town and other islands from Katarina vägen and Fjällgatan,... More

The region offers many pubs and cafes, plus designer shops and second hand stores. It is a young neighborhood, less touristy, where you can enjoy to watch local life. On weekends you can take a good coffee and eat well at some foodtruck.

The neighborhood is filled with beautiful and elegant classical architecture. Sodermalm Saluhall is there. A must go for food. It is also excellent for shopping. There are the usual suspects (Prada, LV, etc), a great shopping centre called Mood Stockholm, there is a huge urban outfitters, skultana retailer (my favourite cufflink brand), NK, Svenskt Tenn, and huge variety of Swedish...

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.
