    When you've done central city and old town...

    View across to Sodermalm

    Go to Sodermalm! Sodermalm is the big residential island south of old town (Gamla Stan). It has a completely different feel to it than central Stockholm and seems to be a very up and coming district. I would either walk over from the old town or take the subway to the stop called "Slussen", and then walk the main street called Gotgatan browsing the shops and people watching. You'll finally end up on the main square called Medborgarplatsen with lots of lively cafes and people.

    If you're looking for a great view of Stockholm, you can get it here in Sodermalm from the so-called Katarinahissen. It is an elevator which takes you up about 40 meters or so to a restaurant above Slussen, and there is a marvelous view from there.

    Sodermalm from City Hall-Stockholm

    This is a great residential area but don't let that fool you. You can see so many different architectural types of the local houses, to the grand hotels that line the harbor. It is great to walk through at sunset especially up on the cliffs. Some really impressive museums are also on this island. The metro will take you through most of the island. Also there are some pretty nice gallerys located on the waterside of the island.

    La Mano - The Hand

    This statue is a memorial over the 500 Swedes that went to Spain in the years 1938-1939. Together with other international voluntary fources they fought for democracy in Spain.
    The Swedish words that are written on the monument have the following meaning:
    "Of the 500 Swedes who during the years 1938-39 fought for the democracy in Spain each third man fell. They gave their outmost at Madrid, Jarama, Guadalajara, Brunete, Teruel, Aragon, Ebro.
    Wanderer, stop and remember them with pride."
    Beside the statue there is a map cut in stone with the names of Madrid, Brunete, Jarama, Guadalajara, Aragon, Teruel and Ebro.
    The Swedish inscription on the small stone beside says:
    "In memoriam of the Swedish volunteers in Spain.
    Erected 1977. Liss Eriksson Born 1919."

    ---
    The place for the statue is very well choosen, many of the soldiers came from the south proletarian part of Stockholm (Södermalm). The statue is more than 4 meters high.
    The Swedish volunteers fought together with German anti-fascists in the well reputated Thälmann batallion. Of those who survived many were wounded.
    All together the international voluntary forces reached 50,000 men.

    Celebrity spotting at Götgatsbacken
    A lot of cool celebrities seem to spend a lot of time around Götgatsbacken om Södermalm - if you fell like spending a few hours looking for famous people, buy a cool magazine at 'Press Stop', then sit down by the window in 'Wayne's Coffee' and start collecting celebrity memories.

    Södermalm is the most diverse area of innercity Stockholm. It’s the place for small independent shops, nice cafés and bars. Basically should you give it a day or two and explore it by foot.

    Reimersholme, Palssundet

    Reimersholme on is an own island on the west side of Sodermalm. With a relaxed atmosphere, boat clubs and small beaches Reimersholme look more south European than Swedish.
