“Glam” Gröndal, Liljeholmen, Aspudden & Midsommarkransen is a collection of suburbs just south of Hornstull, about 10 minutes by subway from the city centre. It also consists of the subway station Telefonplan. This is the home of the old Ericsson factory which is transforming into a modern centre of arts and culture. Telefonplan is constantly evolving and implementing new ideas in schools and companies active in design and fashion. Beautiful functionalist architecture meets raw concrete and classical industrial buildings are replaced by the creative industry.
Some of the very best kept secrets are found in this area, and this is my home. Visit these places and you’ll cover an interesting and beautiful part of southern Stockholm.
Gröndal – Instills a small town feeling with cafés, trams passing by and second hand shopping. Especially one store, Folk & Form ( People & Shape) is worth a visit, featuring retro Swedish furniture designs and more.
Liljeholmen – the subway stop from where to take the tram to Gröndal. Although it’s only a short walk away.
Aspudden – From Gröndal, walk pass Lake Trekanten, then pass Vinterviken and up towards Aspudden.
Midsommarkransen – finish off in Midsommarkransen for a cup of coffee at any café, and some shopping. If it’s time for dinner head towards Restaurant Landet (Telefonplan) or Restaurant Tre Vänner (Midsommarkransen) for a beer and dinner.
