From beeing a muddy industrial area some decades ago, Hammarby Sjöstad has lately developed into a popular living area for foremost young upper middle-class families. It’s modern, rethought, still growing – and buildings and apartments are built taking the environment into consideration.
I like the area because it has of a lot of great promenades alongside the water, which makes a daily stroll with a take away coffee in hand the perfect way to take in the surroundings by. There’s plenty of cafés and restaurants here as well, so why not rest your legs at the seafront.
The nicest way to transport you here is the three minute short free ferry-ride (shuttle traffic every 10 minutes, all year around) from Barnängsbryggan on Södermalm (check Google maps). It gets you straight from the heart of the south side neighborhood of Stockholm to the heart of Hammarby Sjöstad.
