Tour Details

This is your chance to stroll through Stockholm on a walking tour of the trendiest district in Sweden. Like other cities around the world where working class districts became creative mecas, SoFo (South of Folkungatan) is a thriving, creative community full of galleries, vintage shops, fashion and design boutiques, children's shops, and many restaurants and cafes.

The Ostermalm district has a rich history. Once an overflow area to accommodate a growing population too large for the Old Town, it reveals a unique combination of urban and rural elements with interesting architecture and scenic natural views. Gaining its name as a play on words from New York City's famous "SoHo" district, SoFo is an "artsy" place that is home to artists, writers, musicians, and hipsters. Fans of writer Stieg Larsson will be happy to learn that Ostermalm is home to fictional residents Lisbeth Salander and Mikael Blomqvist, the leading characters in the famous Millennium trilogy.

As you stroll through Stockholm's artsy neighborhoods, your knowledgeable guide will regale you with interesting facts about the district's culture and history. Hear haunting tales from long ago about witch trials, executions, and the life of the working class in historic Sweden. As you tour through the streets of SoFo, learn how this intriguing city became the diverse and unique area that it is today.
