Tantolunden Stockholm – A lush oasis

relaxing
Relaxing

Tantolunden is divided into three areas and stretches for a big part of Södermalm in Stockholm, with more than 400 plots of different sizes,

The colony houses of Tanto go back to the early 1900s when the city of Stockholm allowed its citizens to claim a small plot to grow potatoes. Today Tanto is a very popular colony with more than 400 plots of different sizes, and the queue to get a plot is years of waiting.

Tantolunden is divided into three areas and stretches for a big part of Södermalm in Stockholm. The first cultivators were allowed to build small houses of 6-10 square meters with a terrace of 6 sqm. You can still see these tiny houses when you walk through Tantolunden. Today people are very proud of their plots. Many grow veggies and others just plant flowers and keep it as a nice small garden to relax and enjoy. It is not allowed to stay overnight and use it as a summer house. There is no electricity or water in the houses.

It is so relaxing walking in Tantolunden and having access to see all the lush green plants, trees and flowers. Some plots are very large, up to 450 sqm and others small, around 40 sqm. Bring a snack, coffee, a sandwich and walk through this large area, sit on a bench and enjoy the tranquillity. Maybe you'll be lucky and get invited into one of the plots for a visit!

Demi Mat & Bar – Cozy local restaurant

Demi serves a variety of food items and the menu changes regularly. Sobrasada, a hot and spicy Spanish sausage is what I eat almost every time I visit.

Kayaking in the City – Stockholm from the water

Kayaking in Stockholm is easy, fun & something I love doing with my friends. I'm a fan of padding towards Solna & enjoying the view of the city from afar.
