Södermalm

Södermalm is Stockholm’s southern inner city island and hipster epicentre. Here you’ll have no shortage of great restaurants, cultural institutions, bars, and the bohemian side of Stockholm’s nightlife. Around the corner of your street you’ll find quirky boutiques, designer showrooms, and art galleries. Despite its cultural touch, this area keeps it all in a neat and tidy facade. You’ll always have a park nearby, and a lot of charming areas where it’s easy to feel like a local. You’ll be able to walk or bike anywhere in the city from Söder (as the locals call it), if you really want to go somewhere else, that is. If you are interested in renting an apartment on Södermalm, you will find our Corporate Apartments in Stockholm here and we also have a wide range of Corporate Apartments in Sweden if you looking for housing in other cities.

Communications

Södermalm is located near the old town (Gamla Stan) and you’ll be able to go anywhere within the city centre by bike or foot. At Södra station you can hop on all the commuter train lines as well as some national departures. Both the red and green metro lines pass through Södermalm. From Slussen you’ll also be able to take the bus to Nacka and Värmdö. 

Our favourite spots

Eriksdals utegym

By the water near Eriksdalsbadet there’s an outdoor gym that’s free for anyone to use. Easily combined with a waterside run along Årstaviken. 

 

Ivar Lo’s park

One of the hidden treasures of Stockholm. Situated at the peak of the cliff known as Mariaberget, a short walk from Mariatorget metro station, you’ll find a small park with a grand view. Not only a great place for a picnic, this park is a loved spot by locals and tourists alike because of the panoramic view over Stockholm City. 

 

Åsögatan 

Home to some of Stockholms most renowned restaurants. This street offers anything from authentic Japanese cuisine to genuine Italian cooking. La Vecchia Signora, Blue Light Yokohama, Nook and Café Nizza are some of the culinary highlights of this street, but be sure to book a table, their excellence is not a secret.

What locals do

Football

Södermalm is home turf of Hammarby, one of Stockholms three football teams in Allsvenskan (Swedish Football League). You’ll spot bars with green and white flags, and when it’s gameday the fans make their presence known. To put it humbly, Swedish football is probably not the best but the atmosphere in the arena during a derby between rivals Hammarby and Djurgården is definitely something you want to experience if you’re a football fan. Be sure to get tickets on time. 

 

Långholmen 

During summer, people in Södermalm flock to the coves of Långholmen for a swim or to just soak in the sun. Usually crowded but if you take your time you can find a secluded favourite space of your own.
