Sculpture Walk in Södermalm

Unlike other neighbourhoods in Stockholm city, there are relatively few public artworks and large monuments in Södermalm. A notable exception is Mariatorget, the starting point for this walk, which is a showcase of magnificent sculptural display.

The common characteristics of public works in Södermalm are their modest scale and the fact that they were mostly private commissions. Statues and portrait busts of famous men, abundant in other parts of Stockholm, are not commonly found in Södermalm where the artistic qualities of the artwork have played a greater role in the selection and placement of sculptures. Monuments and memorials are usually of a symbolic nature, like the Anna Lind memorial at Medborgarplatsen.

For centuries, Södermalm was inhabited by craftsmen, seafarers and labourers who worked at the many small-scale factories. To this day, Södermalm is a centre for art and crafts with an abundance of artist studios and workshops.  As you will discover during this walk, some famous sculptors and their helpers were active here.

This walk starts in Mariatorget and continues past Fatbursparken and Medborgarplatsento Mosebacke Torg.

Meeting Point: at the Tors fiske fountain by Anders Wissler in Mariatorget, nearest underground stop Mariatorget, exit Mariatorget.

Duration: Approximately 1.5 hours.
