Stockholm/Söderort

Söderort [ˈsøːdərˈuʈ] refers to the part of Stockholm municipality that lies south of Södermalm (which covers the Globe Arena, Hammarby Sjöstad, and Liljeholmen). The term Söderort sometimes refers to all southern suburbs, including Haninge, Huddinge, Botkyrka and others; these are however covered in the Södertörn article. Some parts of what may be considered wider Söderort are covered in our guide to the Stockholm archipelago.

The Woodland Cemetery, Skogskyrkogården, is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and arguably the most interesting place in Söderort.
