Walk in Stockholm


Södermalm is surrounded by water on all sides. On the picture below you see Tantolunden where our walk starts.

You can come here by underground to the station of Hornstull. It takes you 5-10 minutes to walk down to the water.

Our walk in Södermalm

Our walk starts at Tantolunden by the water in the southwest of Södermalm (yellow circle) and goes all the way to Norra Hammarbyhamnen (blue circle). When you reach the water you turn left and a fantastiv walk starts along the water. The walk takes about 1½ hours, but you will sure want to spend more time in making nice stops during the walk.

In Tantolunden you will find small cottages and gardens on the slope. Here people have cultivated since 1915 in order to offer a living and green city.
