My second year of my professional university college education starts tomorrow.
This means that I won't be able to monitor this thread as frequent during day time until the Christmas break.

If you walk along Fjällgatan, take a stop at Fjällgatan 30. This is the house in which the author Per-Anders Fogelström lived for many years.

Hi, Desdichado - what is the current status of construction in the Sodermalmstorg area? We are planning to take the T-bana to Slussen and then walk to the Hilton when we arrive next Saturday- will this be possible? Will we need to walk up to Gotgatan and then turn right? Thanks! And hope your new year of studies is going well!

Södermalmstorg is unaffected at the moment:

The big house if the middle is Stadsmuseet (currently closed for renovations) at Ryssgården. To the right there is three
buildings which is located at Södermalmstorg. You should be able to walk across Södermalmstorg.

Three other webcams overlooking Slussen area:

Hi Desdichado62,- your info has been very helpful in planning my cruise which ends in Stockholm. Quick question about the Frihamnen port. My ship, Regent Navigator gets into Frihamnen on 9/14 and I am trying to pre-book a taxi with Taxi Stockholm. On their website my options for pick up location are: Frihamnen Containerterminalen, Frihamnen Hus N, Hus K, Hus G, Hus E, Hus D, Frihamnen Magasin 1, Magasin 2-9. I can't quite figure out which would be the cruise terminal. Would you happen to know? Thanks!

I think I may have just figured this out. I think it may be Frihamnen Kajplats 638. Thanks!

Just a reminder that from October 2nd it will no longer be possible to use the SL period cards on M/S Emelie.
No decision have been made if this will be turned into a permanent solution.
