Skinnarviksberget

Skinnarviksberget is 53 meters above sea level, which makes it the inner city’s highest point. During the summer, the rocks are ideal for a picnic, and Skinnarviksberget offers you a spectacular view, including Riddarfjärden, Norr Mälarstrand, Old Town, Stockholm City Hall, and many churches.

To get to Skinnarviksberget, you take the subway (red line) or bus number 4 to Zinkensdamm. Once there, you walk up Yttersta Tvärgränd, a charming little street. When you have reached the end of the street, continue to climb up on the cliffs (remember to be careful). Behind them, you will get your reward.

Monteliusvägen

Monteliusvägen – one of Stockholm’s top spots for fantastic views
Another nice viewpoint is the beautiful and somewhat hidden walking lane Monteliusvägen. It is 416 meters long, starts at the street Kattgränd and ends at Skolgränd. Along the way, there are several terraces and park benches, and from here there you have a stunning view of Riddarfjärden and the Old Town. You will also see several old houses in an environment that feels like Stockholm from past centuries.

The easiest way to get to Monteliusvägen is to take the subway to Mariatorget (red line). From there, you walk up the street Blecktornsgränd until you reach the top. There you will see a sign that leads you to Stockholm´s absolutely most beautiful walking lane.

Fåfängan

Fåfängan is a popular destination and is located on a mountain covered with trees near Danviken on the way from Södermalm to Nacka. It’s a stunning viewpoint and has a restaurant and a café with a nice brunch on the weekends.

You can walk to Fåfängan from Slussen, but it will take you a while. Another option is to take the bus (get off at Londonviadukten) or a car. If you walk or take the bus, you can take the stairs starting at Londonviadukten, but be prepared for quite a challenge since the stairs are pretty long. The alternative is the road Klockstapelsbacken which you’ll use if you take a car.
