Maps, location information and walking routes are provided later in this guide. There are many rail works underway in Stockholm, please check before travelling. You can plan your route on the SL.se in Swedish or English, the website also states where lifts or escalators are not working when planning a journey.
The harbour-area in Gröndal consists of a boardwalk, a dock, and a café.
The entrance to the harbour-area is down a shallow slope of packed gravel. There is a barrier at the entrance that can be opened temporarily for arriving taxis and other larger transports.
It is not possible to park inside the harbour-area. More on parking later in this guide.
At the café one can pay using credit-cards and swish. Alcohol is sold at Café Cul De Sac. The menu:
TFS will not provide any food or drinks at this event.
The café seating area at the bar has low tables, chairs, stools, benches and lawn-chairs.
Important: We will display a trans-flag where we set up.
The café has a children’s area with table, chairs, plastic-pool and some toys.
The boardwalk consists of wooden planks. There is a slight inclination from the surrounding packed gravel to the boardwalk. This area is public space and one is allowed to bring food and drinks. There is one picnic-table as shown in the picture below.
It is possible to go into the water from the boardwalk using a ladder.
No beach or other possibility of getting into the water on a shallow slope.
There is a dock extending into the water between the café and boardwalk. There is a short bridge with a shallow slope ending in a small step. The dock consists of concrete.
The toilet belonging to the café is up several steps.
There is an accessible bathroom belonging to the boat club that can be accessed. Ask one of the TFS-organizers to get the key. This bathroom is right by the entrance to the harbour-area.
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.
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:
There are no assigned parking spaces for the harbour-area and café Cul De Sac. It is not possible to park inside the harbour-area. Public paid parking is available on the road Gröndalshamnen (taxa 4):
