Södermalm – trendy, charming and unique
This area is home to a multitude of unusual, interesting and contemporary boutiques for fashion, design, interior décor, vintage merchandise and curios. In general the selection on Söder is trendier, younger and more bohemian than in downtown.
Södermalm is a district of small boutiques. SoFo – the area south of Folkungagatan – along with Götgatan, has become a diverse scene for the new and unexpected, as well as top-class vintage merchandise. This is a place for fashion and design mavens to find things that have been much written about as well as unique items.
If you walk west down Hornsgatan from Slussen, you’ll reach Hornsgatspuckeln, with its row of galleries. Art and handicrafts in different styles and Efva Attling’s first jewelry store can all be found here. Further up Hornsgatan between Mariatorget and Zinkensdamm is a cluster of vintage clothing stores, such as the well-known Judits Second Hand, Herr Judit and classic budget savers such as Stockholms Stadsmission and Myrorna.
Rest your feet at one of the cafés around Nytorget in SoFo, or at Mellqvists Kafé Bar on Hornsgatan, just like Mikael Blomqvist, the hero of Stieg Larsson’s novels.
