Sweden, Stockholm Guide (B): Guide to Sodermalm

Guide to Sodermalm
In an already cool city, Södermalm is a giant amongst men.

A former working-class neighbourhood, Södermalm was once the slums of Stockholm. For decades it was a place to avoid at all cost.

Fast forward to the beginning of the 21st-century and Södermalm isn’t just one of the most popular districts in Stockholm but in the world. Often compared to Williamsburg in New York and SoHo in London, Södermalm is home to a diverse, creative and impossibly hip population.

A small island in the centre of the city, this neighbourhood is where you’ll find some of the best shopping, hippest cafes and trendiest bars in Stockholm. A great neighbourhood day or night, tourists and locals alike flock to the area to enjoy its lively but laidback atmosphere and its long list of things to see and do.

Here is your guide to Södermalm, Stockholm’s coolest neighbourhood.

Shopping
Sofo

The SoFo district is one of the most popular shopping areas in the city. Located on the southeastern side of Södermalm, this neighbourhood covers several blocks south of Folkungagatan (where it gets its trendy moniker) between Ringvägen, Erstagatan and Götgatan.

This hip ‘hood is packed with creative and cool boutiques where shoppers can find everything from clothes and jewellery to houseware, music and more! If you’re looking to achieve that laid-back yet aware Scandi-style, this is the place to shop!
