Did you know this about Södermalm?

Just south of The Old Town lies Södermalm – The Southern Island. This once poor working class neighborhood has evolved into the city’s most creative and diverse district. From the rocky heights you are treated to stunning views of Stockholm. Walking down Götgatan you’ll soon end up in the quirky and trendy SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) area with an abundance of small independent fashion shops and pleasant restaurants. Scattered over the island are small enclaves old wooden houses of the working class that add to the special charm.

Historic City Walk on the Southern Island

This historic walk (2 hrs) will take you to the Southern Island (Södermalm). In this old working class neighbourhood you can enjoy lush parks, quaint wooden houses and astonishing views of the city from the hills. Learn about witches, executioners and the everyday people that has given this island its unique small town atmosphere. For fans of Stig Larsson’s Millennium books several stops that are linked to the books and movies can be added along the way.

Historic Stockholm City Walks with a personal touch

Are you looking for a historic city walk in Stockholm with a personal touch? I arrange walking tours in English for small private groups of free independent travelers with a self-booked itinerary who wish to explore the city along with family and friends away from the busy pre-packaged sightseeing group tours. If you want to experience something different I’ll take you out on the town where you can hang out with the locals.


Discover the city together with a native Stockholmer

How about having a 4th generation Stockholmer show you around her hometown? I specialize in personal walks that allow you to see different parts of my hometown and experience everyday life with a native. The group will consist only of you and the people you are traveling with. During the walk I will tell you about the places we pass along the way, and describe and explain as we go.

Welcome to my home city and Stockholm Stories!
