The harbour-area in Gröndal consists of a boardwalk, a dock, and a café.

3 - Noise and Lighting

There is no access to inside space at this location. Shade can be found at the café-seating. There are also some trees that can provide shade.

We are using an area with public access, so we do not have control over the noise that other users might make. The café is usually crowded on weekends. It is right by the water, with occasional sudden noise from passing boats and jetskis. The café area has music playing at a level that allows ordinary conversation, and the café staff occasionally use a loudspeaker to announce when orders are ready to be picked up.

4 - Directions with Public Transport

Closest metro station is Liljeholmen.  Take the tram (Tvärbanan) towards Solna station or the number 133 bus towards Ekensberg and get of at the second stop: Gröndal. From there it is 350 meters to the Gröndal harbour. (From Liljeholmen it is 1 km if you want to go without public transport.)

It is also convenient to take the tram from Alvik to Gröndal (especially with the SL rail works causing delays around Slussen).

The metro guide to accessibility in English can be found here, with phone numbers to call if you need specific information: https://sl.se/en/eng-info/getting-around/accessibility/

From Gröndal bus/tram stop:
Follow Gröndalsvägen east towards Liljeholmen, then take a left onto the road Gröndalshamnen. Follow the road Gröndalshamnen until you reach the entrance of the harbour-area at Lusuddsvägen. This path stair-free and is marked with green in the map below.

The blue path is an alternative path that has stairs (indicated by zig-zag above).

The stairs on the blue path:
