Söder - in Stockholm
Once known as the "slum" area of Stockholm.
Today, Södermalm, is known as the home of bohemian, alternative culture and a broad range of cultural amenities and it has become the hipster capital of Sweden. Many media and advertising firms have offices here, and artist studios, design houses, and galleries are not uncommon either. This is where entrepreneurs and startup types hang out through out the wide offer of bars and cafes. Definitely the most eclectic area of the city, with a lot of interesting events geared towards the international community. Another area of Söder that blossoms with the return of the warmer days is a small beach at Hornstull, which is southwest of the island. If it wasn’t for the shiny new developments of Liljeholmen, it would be hard to tell that you are in central Stockholm. Kids playing in the sand, parents buying ice cream, friends drinking beer, lovers cuddling under a tree are some of the common sights. It is definitely one of the biggest summer hits of Söder.
The bright coloured houses of this district present the perfect frame for a nice walk around this modern little island in the heart of the city.
