Summer Pedestrian Streets 2017

For the third year in a row, the city of Stockholm is making certain streets pedestrian (i.e. car free)  for the summer months. Restaurants, bars and cafés put out outdoor seating into the streets (not just the sidewalks) and locals stroll up and down enjoying the late summer sun. This has proven so popular with Stockholmers that they have added a street this year, bringing the total to 4 streets.
The pedestrian streets this year are:
Rörstrandsgatan (Vasastan), Skånegatan (Södermalm), Swedenborgsgatan (Södermalm) and for the first time Hornbergs Strand (Kungsholmen).
Swedenborgsgatan is of special interest for guests staying at the Rival Hotel as it is literally right around the corner from the hotel. The street starts at the square Mariatorget (where the hotel is located) and runs 4 blocks or so to the Stockholm Södra Station. On those blocks you will find several restaurants, pubs, cafés and wine bars. All with outdoor seating. For example: Morfar Ginko, Dryck Wine Bar, Half Way Inn, Bistro Süd, Johan & Nyström, Petrus Bakery and Da Luigi. More information in Swedish: click here!
