The island of Södermalm (where I live) has a lot of history. A walk here will take you back all the way to the mid 1650’s. On Nytorgsgatan 5, you will find the smallest house in Stockholm. It dates back to the 1720s. The house used to be much bigger, but in the early 1900s, it was demolished to what it is today.
It used to have five windows out to the street and not the single one you find today. The walk to come here is especially nice if you start your walking from Slussen and walk up on Götgatan and then take the stairs on your left to Urvädersgränd. This cobbled street is also very old and will take you to Mosebacke Torg. Here you’ll find nice old houses and a relaxing atmosphere. I often come here and walk up to the terrace of Mosebacke for a beer. In this area, you’ll see both old houses, the church of Katarina and the smallest house in Stockholm. Most visitors don’t know about it as it is the last house on a dead-end street. It is so small you can almost give it a hug!
