Katarinahissen - you don't actually have to pay for the view!
It only cost 5 SEK, but the view from the Katarinahissen (Katarina Elevator) can actually be obtained for free. This is something we did not discover until we'd reached the top. There is a staircase on the opposite side that takes you all the way up. To be fair, it was easier to get up via elevator, but for budget travellers, discovering we could have had something for free is always a bummer.
Actually, the 5 SEK is only for a one way trip. Payment is in cash to the operator in the elevator.
The view are over Södermalm. You can see the harbor and the lovely houses and architecture of Stockholm. Definitely a good spot to get your bearings in the city and escape from the sometimes overwhelming feeling of narrow and crowded city streets. [more ]
