At this time one week ago I landed in Stockholm, or at Arlanda airport near Stockholm. Two busrides later I arrived at my cozy apartment (found on Airbnb*) in the Södermalm (SOFO) district (and island). Stockholm – a city built on island, turn around a corner and you´re at the sea again – one more reason to fall in love with it!
Another one are all those little wooden houses one still finds all over the city, sometimes quite unexpected!Built in the 18th century working class families lived in these houses.
Berlin vibes in Stockholm: little cafés, cool shops, lots of vintage stores…
Walking a little further, turning around some corners and you´ll find yourself on Monteliusvägen (Montelius road), a promenade on the edge of the rock with the most beautiful view of Mälaren, Gamla stan, Riddarholmen and Stadshuset (Cityhall) on Kungsholmen, flight of stairs lead down to Söder Mälarstand (quay). Start at the corner to Bastugatan, don´t miss the amazing green wooden house from the 18th century.
It´s an constant up and down and up and down.
And another view of Gamla Stan from Fotografiska (the photography museum)
