Free Walking Tour of Södermalm
Having met your guide at 3 pm in Mariatorget, a park and city square on Södermalm island, you'll begin your free walking tour of Stockholm's hipster district. Heading first to the Monteliusvägen viewpoint, you'll get a fantastic introduction to the neighbourhood with unparalleled panoramic views over the Swedish capital.
Continue your walking tour through Södermalm to the Maria Magdalena Church, whose iconic yellow belfry can be seen from most places in the district. We'll learn lots of fascinating facts as well as visiting the cemetery around the church. In addition, we'll tell you about some illustrious figures, such as the scientist Polhem.
Next, we'll walk towards one of Södermalm's most important institutions, the Södra Latin. We'll then head down Götgatan Street, the busiest street in the neighbourhood, which crosses the entire island from Gamlastan to Skanstull. In the background, we'll be able to see the impressive Avicii Arena.
We'll then walk up to another area of Södermalm to see Katarina Church and the large mural of the twins. Our tour will then continue next to Södra Teatern, a theatre where alternative performances are staged. Here, you'll see a statue of two women whose story is related to victims of LGTBI-related crimes.
Finally, your tour will come to an end at 5:30 pm on the Stockholm City Museum's esplanade, where we'll see the planet Mercury to scale.
