This area is quite hilly, add that to narrow sidewalks and cobblestone streets and it presents a challenge to walk around. Glad I make teh effort, but if time is limited, stick to the Old Town, perhaps Ostermalm, and absolutely walk Djurugarden. I came here...More

Too many people. Here is the neighborhood of anyone living on contributions. A lot of drugs and dirtier than the more prosperous neighborhoods in central Stockholm. Visit Kungsholmen, Vasastan or Östermalm instead where there is more order and reason. A lot of drug addicted people...More

I loved this neighbourhood; it seems to have a little bit of everything: nice and leafy squares, cosy wooden buildings, pleasant parks, great views and nightlife. I recommend going for a walk in the eastern part of the neighbourhood, starting at Nytorget.

The 'hipster' district with lots of views over Old Town but shops, cafes, restaurants everywhere. Definitely spend a few hours exploring and walking the streets and different areas to absorb touristic and local culture/spots!

Great place. Shops everywhere and cafes everywhere. I find it to be a very busy area, with a lot of people walking around, but also very safe from what i saw. However, we are staying in skanstull so we are close to sodermalm and come...More

A unique mix of grotesque 1960s concrete urban vision
and cosy historical Swedish brick houses, Slussen has
become one of Stockholm’s most architecturally edgy
and controversial neighborhoods. Plans to rebuild the
area have been on the agenda for decades, however, so
far no agreement could be reached, which is the reason
for the continuing decay of its brutalist substance.
