I visited here with my brother after we walked across the bridge and over to the Slussen area. The old lift towers over the other buildings and we found our way up the numerous flights of steps. It's fairly grimy around the area and as...More

Yes there’s a lot of construction. It will probably be there for another few years according to locals. But it’s a free view of the city. Free!! Either walk from Gamla Stan or get off at the Slussen stop. We only stayed for about 20...More

Best way to see Stockholm from above. If you think the city is beautiful from the ground wait until you see it from here. OK, at the moment there are major constructions going on around the area, but the waterfront of the old town is...More

As at many places in Stockholm, there is a quite large construction site here. You hardly can find where the walkway starts, and there is no entrance from the ground through the elevator. Advice: Do not even think about to get here at all.

When we eventually found the entrance to the walkway, no signposts and with the amount of construction going on at the time it was very difficult to navigate, it was slightly disappointing. They have big plans for it so perhaps wait until those renovations are...More

This is within easy walking distance from Gamla Stan, although bear in mind you have to climb lots of steps to get there as there is no elevator. Definitely worth it though as you benefit from a really good view over Stockholm. And all free...More

This one of the best known palces to visit in Stockholm. From the terrace you have wonderful view of the city. From the Gondol you have access to Restaurant Gondolen which is famous for its food.

What you can see right now is mostly the vast reconstruction of Slussen down below, which will take a long time to finish. On top of that, the walkway feels like a prison yard. There are better viewpoints on Södermalm.

This has been under restoration off-an-on. You do have a great view of the old town and Djurgården from up here.

This whole area is under construction now. It has been closed to traffic and pedestrians, although the underpasses are still in use. The view from the top restaurant gives you a good idea of the chaos - but you also get nice views beyond that...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.
Nevertheless, the museums and the main shopping
