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. Not far from the church, you'll find a statue of the "secret little horse" of Stockholm... do you know the story behind it? You'll then stroll over to Medborgarplatsen, a plaza which forms the heart of Södermalm and where the locals love to come and shop in the eco-friendly stores surrounding the square.
Södermalm's hispter population also likes to gather in Björns Garden, a relaxing urban park near to the Katarina Church, one of the neighbourhood's gems of Baroque architecture. You'll get a feel for Stockholm's underground counterculture scene as you walk by the independent theatre known as Södra Teatern and explore the popular Götagatan Street, known for its vintage clothing stores.
Finally, your tour will come to an end at 5:30 pm in front of the Stockholm City Museum, after having admired the urban art in the Slussen Metro Station, located in the same square.
