StockholmSubwaystoRy #98 – Björkhagen06.05.2018
Hello everyone and welcome to our first Stockholm Subway StoRy from May! The sun is spoiling the Swedish capital and we took the chance to get new photos for the coming stations in our project. Enjoy!
Today’s station is Björkhagen, located in the district with the same name in the southern part of Stockholm. Opened in November 1958, the open-air station has only one entrance which leads to a large platform.
Nowadays, Björkhagen serves the green line in the Stockholm subway system. The neighboring stations are Hammarbyhöjden towards the western end of the line, while towards its southern end comes Kärrtorp.
Even if it’s at about only 5 km away from Slussen, it’s not one of the most popular stations in the city, with only almost 4.000 people using it on a regular day.
What is worth noticing are the artistic decorations made by Lenka Jonesson and installed in 1991 on the platform. Also, at Björkhagen starts the Sörmland trail, the 1000 km long trail that allows you to explore Sörmland. You can find more information about it here.
