Norrmälarstrand is a beautiful path along the lake of Mälaren in Kungsholmen in Stockholm.
In the photo below you can see Centralstationen, the Central Station, where our walk starts.
Our walk starts at Centralstationen (yellow circle) and goes all the way to Lilla Essingen (blue circle). When you are standing with the Central Station behind your back you turn right and walk towards the water.
The walk takes about 1½ hours, but you will sure want to spend more time in making nice stops during the walk.
We want you to discover your own favourites, but we want to give you some ideas about the walk - things that we appreciate a lot.
At the beginning of your walk you will pass Stadshuset, the City Hall. From this place it is possible to make pleasant excursions by boat, why not return here one day and go to Drottningholm or Mariefred?
The City Hall opened in 1923 and is considered a treasure in terms of artistic quality. The nice City Hall Garden is a peaceful oasis with beautiful flowers and sculptures. In addition, it offers a fantastic view over the water.
A nice path for walking continues along the water. In some places there are many boats.
During your walk you will meet strolling tourists from all corners of the world but also people from Stockholm.
Why not take a break in a cafe by the water?
In the background you can see Västerbron, the West Bridge, which goes from Södermalm, over Långholmen and Riddarfjärden to Kungsholmen.
After a while you will reach Rålambshovsparken, a large park in Kungsholmen in Stockholm. A beautiful day the park is a wonderful place for a picnic.
Our walk continues along the water, and will take you to Smedsuddsbadet, a popular beach in Riddarfjärden, with a nice view towards Långholmen.
The walk continues further along the water and takes you to Mariebergsbron and Lilla Essingen.
Earlier there were several large industries on the island of Lilla Essingen, including Lux (vacuum cleaners). Recently the industries have been replaced by a modern residential area which is called Essinge Udde.
It is possible to walk around more or less the entire island of Little Essingen, the walk offers fantastic views.
When you have walked around the island and return to Mariebergsbron, our walk ends. From here you can take bus number 1 back to the central part of Stockholm.
Maybe you are hungry after your walk, why not have a meal at the restaurant "Rosa Drömmar" next to the bridge.
Väl tillbaka vid Mariebergsbron är vår promenad slut. Härifrån går det bra att ta buss nummer 1 tillbaka till centrala Stockholm.
Är du hungrig efter den härliga promenaden kan du som avslutning ta en bit mat på restaurang "Rosa Drömmar" invid Mariebergsbron.
