Fjällgatan Sightseeing Spot
Stockholm - Sweden
Fjällgatan is sometimes referred to as the “balcony” of Stockholm. Located on the north eastern shore of Södermalm, with buildings dating back to the 18th century, it offers a panoramic view of Old Town to the west, Skeppsholmen and Djurgården with Gröna Lund amusement park and Skansen to the east. From the viewing platform you can get a feeling of Stockholm that you cannot get anywhere else, with the water in the foreground accentuated by the buildings by the shore on the other side, and the modern sky scrapers in the background. It shows Stockholm’s old heritage mixed with the modern more recent developments, something that you will also notice while walking through the streets of Stockholm. Whether Fjällgatan is your first or last stop during your stay in Stockholm doesn’t really matter, as it can either serve as the perfect introduction and give the new visitor a sense of what Stockholm is, on the other hand Fjällgatan can also serve as the final stop and offer the visitor the opportunity to reflect over their, hopefully wonderful, time in Stockholm the capital of Sweden.
