Bohemian and alternative culture
Södermalm was a mainly rural working class area until the middle of the 20th century when it became fully urbanised. There are still traces of that earlier time in picturesque allotments on the slopes of Eriksdal and a few of the little red workers houses at Åsögatan. Södermalm today is known for Bohemian lifestyles and cultural attractions including the Södra Teatern (Southern Theatre).
The theatre in Södermalm is privately owned and hosts diverse events that range from concerts to children’s philosophy. Built in 1859 it is the oldest theatre in Stockholm although much of the season’s programme is now taken up by musical events. However, with seven stages there is never a shortage of shows to please all tastes, and in 2011 the theatre hosted over 1,000 events.
