The story about the tour
Close your eyes and imagine a place where people stuff their own sausages and brew their own beer. Where the main tasks of the day for some include buying a latte, bringing their toddler in their vintage carrier to Nytorget Square to meet fellow latte mums and sourdough dads. Open your eyes to reveal the “Hipster Island,” also known as Södermalm, where this is the reality. If you want to experience the hippest, trendiest and bohemian part of Stockholm with a touch of times past – our walking tour Hipstoric Södermalm is it!
On this walking tour, we will set off on our hipstoric (where hipster meets historic – clever, eh?) adventure from the square Södermalmstorg, beginning with a short hike (it’s not Everest!) up the main shopping street of Södermalm, Götgatan. Along the way, we will journey through executions, breathtaking cityscape views, the life of the working class, local hotspots and hidden gems.
It’s a big island, where the hipster hangouts are many, so we’ll give you a selection of our favourites, including a taste of a real local treat… yum! We’ll drop you off in the area of SoFo (South of Folkungagatan) at the lively square Nytorget, right in the heart of Södermalm. Believe us when we say you’ll probably want to stay for a drink, just like the locals. Oh! And did we mention that Södermalm made the list for the top 15 coolest neighbourhoods in the world?! Surely you wouldn’t want to miss that!
