stockholm places in winter, backstreets of södermalm


many parts of södermalm have kept a functioning urban milieu . from fin de siecle (1900) . small streets, little traffic, shops , cafees , bistros , restaurants, second hand .

just two examples for places to go :  TWANG  on katharina bangatan 21 .  its a hang-out place for the yyoung, little bit boheme , little bit wasted away interieur, life-music sometimes . beerprices 53,-  for a big one . books, magazines .   good music from the speakers I guess.

take bus 2 to medborgarplatsen , then walk up götgatan towards skanstull . after 500m katharina bangatan goes towards tte left in a 45 degrees angle ( it was a former train-track ) .   fotos from TWANG later .

a complete interesting contradiction lies on östgötagatan . ( coming from medborgarplatsen you turn left into folkungagatan, then take the first to the right . )  ÖSTGÖTAKÄLLAREN lies on the left after 50 meters , after schweijk . schweijk is tchek but the beerprices do not correspond well to the poor interior .  happily more impressive is the neighboor ÖSTGÖTAKÄLLAREN with its opettere-like  interior, with aballustrade  , furnitures from the end of 1800, crystal chandeliers and all the crap that the upper middle-class at that time liked. its just marvellous .  if you feel like conquering this place with all the white-haired couples there ,  being a gang of youngsters or old hipsters , yet polite and open , it would really be something .  gonna go there with my 70 years old friend lars from södertäle on the next weekend .    fotos gonna be following later .
