Södermalm Tour - Humble Beginnings
Birth of the Cool
Elisabeth is a sixth-generation Stockholmer with great appreciation and in-depth knowledge of the city. She holds a Bachelor of Arts and a Masters of Interpreting from Stockholm University and enjoyed a one-year study-abroad program at the University of Minnesota. Her fields of interest comprise history, architecture, art, literature, film, and politics.
Lars is himself a world traveler, but Södermalm in Stockholm is where he feels most at home. He has a passion for Stockholm’s history but very much up-to-date with the city of today. With a love of food, he is sure to know where the best chefs have their restaurants. And as a trained ranger (in South Africa) Lars is also sure to know the city’s parks, flora and fauna.
Karin grew up in the Stockholm area and spent her studying years in Uppsala, a university town one hour north of Stockholm, before deciding to move back to the capital. She holds an MA in Languages Education and has been teaching English and French in Swedish schools for about 30 years. To improve her language skills and knowledge of different cultures, she spent time working and studying in the UK, France, Switzerland, and the USA. During her years of studies in Uppsala, she also took some time off to work as a tour leader in Brussels, Paris, and on the Channel island of Jersey. More recently, during the summer holidays, she has hosted passengers traveling through the 58 locks of the Göta Canal, a waterway between the two cities of Stockholm and Göteborg, known as “The Blue Ribbon”. Besides her background in linguistics and culture, her interests are music, dance, art and spending time with friends and family. Working as a qualified Stockholm guide constantly gives her plenty of new discoveries and knowledge about her city.
