Sustainable Hammarby Sjöstad

From a run-down and polluted industrial area to a lovely residential district, our Sustainable Hammarby Sjöstad Private Walking Tour uncovers one of the world’s most thriving urban renewal districts Hammarby Sjöstad. It’s clean and green!

The story about the tour

How sustainable is Stockholm really, you might ask? Consider this! Of the energy used by Stockholm city’s operations, 100% comes from renewable sources, 99% of the city’s solid waste is recycled, the city’s tap water is one of the world’s cleanest, and Stockholm has a goal of being fossil-fuel free by 2040. Does it end there? Of course not!

Let us introduce you to our Sustainable Hammarby Sjöstad Private Walking Tour, where we have a closer look at Hammarby Sjöstad, which in the early 1990s had a reputation for being a run-down, polluted and unsafe industrial and urban area. Built as an Olympic village to assist Sweden in getting the summer Olympics in 2004, it is now one of Stockholm’s most charming residential districts and one of the world’s most thriving urban renewal districts.

As we stroll through Hammarby Sjöstad, along picturesque waterfronts and through attractive residential areas, we will explore the ultimate goal for the district; to cut the total environmental impact by half. These new strict environmental requirements meant new solutions; what were they, and why was the project successful? Perhaps you have heard of the Hammarby model? If not, rest assured that when we leave Hammarby Sjöstad, you will better understand the sustainable methods of managing water, energy, and waste implemented in the area.

On our Sustainable Hammarby Sjöstad Private Walking Tour, see with your own eyes the design that has inspired international examples, such as Toronto’s Waterfront and London’s New Wembley, to name but a few. Listen to the stories and deep-dive into the many aspects applied to the sustainable urban planning of the urban district Hammarby Sjöstad.

Available, obtainable and sustainable! We can’t wait to show you Hammarby Sjöstad.
