Hammarby Sjöstad

The old shabby harbour and industrial area, known as Hammarby Port, was planned according to a strict environmental model. The industrial soil was classified, taken away, cleaned and put back. And the houses were built according to a quality program, which nowadays attracts curious visitors from all over the world.

Although this area is located outside what is traditionally considered to be the perimeter of inner-city Stockholm, the design is urban rather than suburban, with boulevards, clearly defined city blocks and commercial spaces in the ground floor of the buildings.

Let a guide tell you for which the area was planned and which kind of families that moved into the area. And all about how the garbage is taken care of!
